It is an expectation that music appears regularly in the weekly timetable. It is usually taught once per week as a discrete subject. Additional music sessions may feature, for example listening to music at the end of the day or within other lessons. Extra time may be given to music during periods of rehearsal for class assemblies, Nativities and productions. We are currently using Charanga. to support our music curriculum.
Charanga is a week-by-week scheme of work for the whole school. It assists teachers in developing musicality by delivering the objectives outlined in the National Curriculum. It is used and promoted by specialist music teachers within the Luton Music Hub.
English National Opera:
In September 2022, Years 5 & 6 registered for the English National Opera's 'Finish this...' project. 'Finish this' involves the children becoming ENO composers, who are tasked with a mission to respond to and resolve a purposefully unfinished operatic piece titled, 'Blue, Red, Yellow.....'
This is a creative catalyst for children to embrace their imaginations and experiment to create new colour worlds and stories, all through the lens of opera.
