In this section of the website, you will find information about our approach to teaching Music at Neville’s Cross.
What does Music look like at Neville’s Cross?
At Neville’s Cross, we recognise the value of Music is building confidence and offering children opportunities to shine. We believe Music teaching should promote a love of music and a personal journey of discovery including music from periods of history, world music and music children create themselves. Children gain a firm understanding of the key ingredients of music through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing and composing. They are taught the appropriate vocabulary to describe musical elements in what they hear and to have the confidence to combine them in different ways and explore the effect. We use Charanga Music School as a base for our Music curriculum. Charanga is a scheme of work which offers a wide range of musical styles and genre from contrasting times and places. A steady progression plan has been built into Charanga within each year and from one year to the next to ensure consistent musical development. Our curriculum is planned and delivered over a 2 year roll and the units are organised to ensure children have opportunities to revisit and review within lessons and across each unit.
