We use the Charanga scheme of learning for our music teaching in throughout school. . This is a well-structured programme of learning that builds knowledge, skills and understanding in music giving them time to study important pieces of music and also to learn how to create music. Alongside this programme we use the BBC Ten Pieces resources to teach our pupils about significant pieces of classical music.
In Key Stage One, pupils are taught by a specialist music teacher from Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust (NMPAT)
Year 3 pupils participate in a project through NMPAT to help them learn to play a stringed instrument. Children are able to continue learning the instrument through individual or small group music lessons. We offer music lessons for stringed instruments and the guitar in Key Stage Two. We also have a very active choir which pupils from Year 2 to 6 can join.
