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, although there will be no singing at the moment, due to Covid-19 restrictions. 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.

In its 11th year The Young Songwriter 2021 (SAYS21) competition is the leading songwriting competition for young people to express themselves and be heard. SAYS21 is open to young people aged 8-18 years old (for 8 year olds to under 19 year olds). Entries can be submitted by individuals or groups/bands. Songs must be under 4.5 minutes. Songs can be on any topic and in any genre of music. All lyrics and music must be the entrant’s own original work. The accompaniment/music must be masterminded by the entrant/s, however can be played by family or friends if the entrant is unable to do so. Entrants can use songwriting apps such as GarageBand & Soundtrap and their available sounds. Each entrant may submit up to 5 songs and 5 additional joint entries. Entry costs £10 per song to cover administration & judging costs. Entrants don’t need a professional recording as they will be judged on their originality, lyrics, melody, composition and potential to be a smash hit! However, a good recording can most certainly help to enhance the impact of your song.
You’ll need to submit audio recordings (mp3 format) and lyrics. Closing date 31.3.21
