Music is taught following the Charanga scheme of work. The units, come from the scheme and have been planned to ensure they cover all of the key subject content for each key stage in the National Curriculum. Music is taught in 3 half termly blocks spread out across the year. There are additional opportunities for singing, performance and enrichment activities throughout the year.
Each year group should aim to perform one ensemble piece during the year either on an instrument for a vocal/singing performance.
Through listening and appraising, games, singing, playing instruments, improvisation, composition and performing, pupils will experience the following musical genres.
|Year 1||Year 2|
|Year 3||Year 4|
|Year 5||Year 6|
At Northfield, we celebrate the following festivals:
- Chinese New Year
Each year group is encouraged to learn a song or respond to music to produce a dance about the festival and share this in a whole school celebration assembly.
At Northfield, we endeavour to provide additional musical opportunities outside of the main lessons through the arrangement of the following:
- Whole school singing as part of assemblies and regular singing practise
- Cross curricular listening and appraisal ( topic teaching and entrance/exit music in assemblies)
- After school clubs
- School choir
- Orchestra Unwrapped ( 2 year groups per year)
- Identification of talented pupils and challenge accordingly
