Music

 

Across the Federation of Hanbury's Farm and Oakhill Primary School, we value music as a powerful and unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act. We intend to inspire creativity, self-expression and expose children to diverse musical experiences to develop aesthetic sensitivity and fulfilment.

 

The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music
  • are taught to sing, create and compose music
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated

 

The music curriculum is embedded into classroom activities through the scheme Charanga. Charanga provides children with an integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach to musical learning. Children will gain an understanding of music through listening, singing, playing and evaluating across a range of styles, traditions, and musical genres. The class teachers will deliver music lessons, every week, for a minimum of 30 minutes. We also receive music lessons from the ENTRUST music service to provide Year 3 and 4 with lessons that enable them to learn a specific instruments such as guitars and glockenspiels. Children will learn to understand the methods of creating notes, as well as how to read basic music notation. Music is also used in other lessons and activities to create, mood, atmosphere and to aid thinking and concentration.

 

Extra-curricular clubs are provided through a choir. This gives pupils the opportunity to practice singing and work towards performances such as assemblies, performances to parents and Young Voices.
