Pinhoe Primary School- Music
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” – Plato
At Pinhoe C of E Primary School, we would like our children to develop a love and appreciation of music that will stay with them for life. We want music teaching and learning to be enjoyable, inspiring and exciting with many opportunities for children to develop their musical potential.
The National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all children:
- perform, listen to, review and evaluate music
- be taught to sing, create and compose music
- understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated
The teaching and learning of the music curriculum at Pinhoe C or E Primary School is planned using the Charanga Music Scheme. The Charanga Music Scheme follows
We also hold weekly ‘Live Lounges’ where children, who are learning an instrument, play to the rest of the school as they enter and leave the assembly. Our aim is for other children to feel inspired to take up learning an instrument.
We will measure the impact of pupil’s work through termly teacher assessments, through discussions with children and through teaching and learning observations. We hold termly performances where parents are invited to listen to their children performing the instrument they have been learning that term.
