How is Music taught at our school?
We have opted to use Charanga as a scheme of work to support our Music teaching in both schools.
Using Charanga, children have the opportunity to listen and appraise, compose and perform using a range of instruments. Charanga fulfils the National Curriculum requirements and demonstrates a clear progression of skills across the school. Performances are currently captured on Seesaw so that we are able to share with parents but we are also exploring using the online portal on the website itself.
