‘Without music, life would be a mistake.’
Friedrich Nietzsche

Music at St Mary’s aims to create a love of music. We teach music weekly on alternate terms, have a ‘Composer of the Term’ to broaden our awareness of genres and enjoy regular singing assemblies with our music lead teacher.

Music teaching fosters creativity and enjoyment as well develops musical skills and expression. Music is an inclusive subject not limited to ability in other subjects. All children have the ability to access the music curriculum through differentiation and inclusive activities. Children perform through song or instrumentation every lesson, building confidence and enjoyment.

At St Mary’s we use a scheme of work, Charanga, which follows the National Curriculum and explores the new Model Music Curriculum. The activities and games included in the scheme cover the musical dimensions, (pulse, rhythm, pitch etc) through singing and playing instruments, listening and creating music. These are all then linked through a central song or piece.
