Our music curriculum is mapped out to show a clear progression of skills and knowledge from EYFS to Year 6. At Chorlton C of E we have a specialist music teacher. Opportunities are provided to perform, listen to and evaluate music. Our curriculum gives children a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. Children learn to use their voices, create and compose music thinking about pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and musical notation. Through music lessons we enable children to understand musical concepts through a repetition based approach to learning. This approach enables a more secure, deeper learning and mastery of musical skills.
Our Music curriculum is also drawn from:
Children at Chorlton C of E enjoy learning about music and playing a variety of musical instruments, including the ukulele, ocarina, recorder, glockenspiel, trumpet, steel pans and a variety of untuned instruments. Children take part in variety of musical lessons, singing assemblies and the school choir, showing their enjoyment of music. Evidence captured during lessons demonstrates how children have learnt new skills and progress, and ongoing assessments show children engage with and enjoy the Music curriculum. Children understand how music can be used to express their emotions and how to express themselves through music.
