Welcome to Hylton Castle Primary School

Music

Music Statement of Intent

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. At Hylton Castle Primary, we wish for children to develop a genuine passion, interest and enthusiasm for Music throughout their school life. Children will explore a range of different concepts within Music, from learning to play an instrument, to exploring the history of Music from different periods.

Implementation – Hylton Castle follow ‘Charanga’ Scheme of work. 

How the Scheme is structured

Each Unit of Work comprises the of strands of musical learning which correspond with the national curriculum for music:

1. Listening and Appraising   

2. Musical Activities

     a. Warm-up Games

     b. Optional Flexible Games

     c. Singing

     d. Playing instruments

     e. Improvisation

     f. Composition

3. Performing

Impact

Pupils will gain access to a varied curriculum, inclusive of all needs. They can identify key strengths within Music, as well as identifying areas they believe they can improve on. The integral nature of music and the learner creates an enormously rich palette from which a child may access fundamental abilities such as: achievement, self-confidence, interaction with and awareness of others, and self-reflection. Children’s understanding of culture and history will develop, both in relation to children individually, as well as different ethnicities from across the world. They can sing and feel a pulse. They have an understanding of how to further develop skills less known to them, should they ever develop an interest in their lives.
