MUSIC AT HARTHILL
Our curriculum enables children to:
Understand concepts, themes and genres
Acquire and apply knowledge and skill
So that they:
develop a strong sense of belonging with a good understanding of the wider world.
be inspired to raise their ambition.
grow resilience as determined and independent individuals.
show kindness, respect and tolerance.
Intent:Through our music curriculum children will access, acquire, attempt and apply disciplinary (skill-based) and substantive (factual) knowledge to develop their musical abilities, following the Charanga curriculum. Charanga presents learning in a way that makes it fun and engaging for everyone, separating the key links into listening & responding, understanding & communicating and developing performance & skill. There is a song at the heart of every step of learning to engage and inspire pupils and provide a vehicle for their development of subject specific skills.
Through our music curriculum children will:
-be taught new skills and learn new information about music and the different components that make up musical understanding and performance.
-learn about a variety of musical styles, instruments, songs and performances.
-develop their creativity, as well as the ability to thinking critically about music in all of its forms
-broaden awareness of historical and social significance of the practice, creation, and study of music
The impact of our music curriculum is demonstrated in the following ways:
-what children say (pupil questioning, explanations, discussion contributions, verbal retrieval)
-what children do (performances, rehearsals and recordings).
