At Hamstel Infant and Nursery School, we believe that Music should be an enjoyable experience for both pupils and teachers. The children will participate in a range of musical experiences which will also build upon their confidence at the same time.
We follow the Charanga Scheme which has progressive units to follow. The learning within this Scheme is based on: Listening and Appraising; Musical Activities and Creating and Exploring; Singing and Performing.
Within EYFS the children have daily musical experiences including singing and exploring how to make music. In KS1 the children will build upon their prior knowledge and begin to develop their understanding of rhythm and pitch as well as learn how music is structured. The children will be encouraged to use the taught key vocabulary for these different elements.
As children’s confidence builds, they will enjoy the performance aspect of Music which include year group performances to an audience. Throughout their time at Hamstel Infant School and Nursery, the children will experience listening to music from different cultures and eras and will learn to respond to this in a variety of ways.
