Music

Music at Titchfield Primary school is intended to be expressive, enjoyable and engaging.  It forms an important part of our curriculum and is often used in class and in whole school assemblies. 

 

Our aims come from the Music National Curriculum which are:

 

To ensure that all pupils:

 

 perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians

 

 learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence

 

 understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

 

At Titchfield Primary School we have subscribed to the Charanga music scheme for non-specialist teachers. 

The learning within this Scheme is based on: Listening and Appraising; Musical Activities; creating and exploring; and Singing and Performing

 

 

The Charanga Musical School Scheme provides teachers with week-by-week lesson support for each year group in the school. It is ideal for specialist and non-specialist teachers and provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources to support every lesson. The Scheme supports all the requirements of the national curriculum.

 

In line with the curriculum for music and guidance from Ofsted, this Scheme moves away from the previous levels and learning objective/outcome concepts to an integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach to musical learning.

 

The interrelated dimensions of music weave through the units to encourage the development of musical skills as the learning progresses through listening and appraising, differing musical activities (including creating and exploring) and performing.

 

How the Scheme is structured

Each Unit of Work comprises the of strands of musical learning which correspond with the national curriculum for music:

  1. Listening and Appraising
  2. Musical Activities
    1. Warm-up Games
    2. Optional Flexible Games
    3. Singing
    4. Playing instruments
    5. Improvisation
    6. Composition
  3. Performing

 

Singing is a core component of music.  Extensive research has shown the undeniably positive impact singing has on emotional, physical and mental well-being. This is the reason why singing features so highly in music curricula and on educational agendas – as well as simply being a great thing to do!

All children have the opportunity to learn three instruments whilst they are at Titchfield Primary School. 

 

Year 2 - Recorders

Year 3 - Steel Pans

Year 5 - Ukuleles

 

There are further extra-curricular opportunities available to children through the school choir and Rocksteady band tuition.  The school choir is an after school club which is run by Miss Dugan and children learn to sing and perform a range of songs from different music genres.  

 

Rocksteady provides children with the opportunity to be in a band and gives them instrument tuition.  It is available for children throughout the school and there is an additional charge. More information can be found by looking at their website.  https://www.rocksteadymusicschool.com/
