At St Margaret Mary's Infants, Music is embedded into all aspects of school life and our aim is to inspire children to adopt a lifelong love of music.
Music is taught in weekly lessons following the Charanga Musical School scheme of work. This is an engaging and exciting scheme which supports National Curriculum requirements. The scheme provides children with practical, exploratory and child-led approaches to musical learning. Each year group follow a series of topics, linked closely to complement other curriculum areas in a fun and exciting way. The Charanga scheme of work allows us to encourage the development of musical skills through listening and appraising, comparing of genre, creating and exploring and performing.
During assemblies and school services, music plays an important role in encouraging the children to celebrate, share success and gather together as a school family.
Our aim is for children to be given the opportunity to gain an appreciation and understanding of the many benefits that music can offer. We aspire to give children the confidence to perform, create and explore, using music to express their feelings and create a positive and fun learning environment.
