The National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music
- Be taught to sing, create and compose music
- Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated.
At Great Chart Primary School, children learn music skills and knowledge progressively through themed, purposeful learning that is integral in our creative curriculum. To enable music teaching to be accessible to all, staff are supported to enable children to gain a firm understanding of and intrigue in music through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres.
As well as class music lessons, the children have wider opportunities to learn an instrument including the ukulele and djembe drums. Music clubs take place across the year such as ‘Great Chart Singers’ and Recorder Group.
