How is Music taught at our school?

We have opted to use Sing Up as a scheme of work to support our Music teaching in both schools.  

Using Sing Up, children have the opportunity to listen and appraise, compose and perform using a range of instruments. Sing Up fulfils the National Curriculum requirements and demonstrates a clear progression of skills across the school. Performances are currently captured on Class Dojo so that we are able to share with parents.
