Music

 At Kenton Bar Primary School, we place a great emphasis on the importance of Music within our curriculum. Music is a universal language which contributes to our well-being and to our social, emotional and cultural development.
 
Intent
In our Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim to:
  • Develop imagination and creativity in our children

  • Develop the ability to vocalise what likes or dislikes about a piece of music

  • Develop the ability to sing, using voices as instruments.

In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children study the National Curriculum for Music and we aim to:

  • Engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music

  • Increase self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement

  • Develop a critical engagement with music

  • Develop an understanding of the history of music.

Charanga Music Scheme
 
At Kenton Bar Primary School,  we provide a strong musical education using 'Charanga Music Scheme.' Charanga allows children to learn musical skills through structured lessons which ensure progress and fun through lessons specifically designed for each year group - rhythm and beat, singing with lyrics, learning musical notations and playing instruments. All children within school also have their own access to the website which allows them to improve on their musical skills from home via games, challenges and instrument based worlds.
