Where words fail, music speaks 

- Hans Christian Andersen

Music at Whitchurch

In our school, the music curriculum exposes children to a variety of music experiences, through which we aim to build up the confidence of every child. Children are taught to listen to and respond to a range of musical experiences and develop a life-long love and appreciation of different musical forms.

We recognise that, just as regular reading and listening to stories improve children’s literacy skills, high quality singing and listening opportunities improve pupils’ internalisation of music.  Our pupils have access to this through our regular singing assemblies, through our in-school choirs, and also through our music lessons in class using our chosen scheme of work, Charanga.

Our Music curriculum has been designed and developed using the National Curriculum which aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • perform, listen to and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians;
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others;
  • have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence;
  • understand how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics,tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
