Music

Statement of Intent

We aim to provide all pupils with a vehicle through which they can express themselves musically. All pupils are given the opportunity to learn an instrument and aim to engage all children through regular singing opportunities and develop a sense of enjoyment through singing. We want pupils to be critical listeners and develop skills in evaluating and recreating their own music.

 

Have a look at the 'What are we learning?' section on each year group's page to see what they are covering in Music.

 

Music at Parkside

Each class takes part in weekly music lessons following the Charanga Musical School Scheme. The scheme introduces all aspects of the National Curriculum, providing a wide selection of music pieces to listen and respond to, vocal and instrumental teaching, opportunities to improvise, compose and perform music, and exposure to musical notation throughout every lesson.

In addition, children in Year 3 benefit from specialist instruction from a Ukulele teacher from the Music and Arts Service.

Children take part in weekly singing assemblies from Years 1 to 6, and children in EYFS experience songs and rhymes as an integral part of their daily learning.

Extra-curricular options include singing and musical theatre clubs, and the opportunity to partake in concerts such as Young Voices at the Fly DSL Arena, and the Big Sing and Little Big Sing at The Junction in Goole.
