Our Music Curriculum

Music and the Performing Arts are a huge part of our STEAM curriculum. We have singing assemblies, Performing Arts projects throughout the year, and instrumental lessons alongside our progressive Music curriculum which is accessed by all children.

Our curriculum offers children a broad range of musical experiences. We teach the National Curriculum expectations for Music and integrate performing, listening, composing, and learning about significant pieces of Music throughout history. Our school subscribes to the Charanga music scheme so that children can develop their singing, performance skills, and awareness of musical notation. 

The Oxfordshire County Music Service offer brass lessons to children in Year 5. All children in the class will learn to play a brass instrument with a specialist teacher who helps them to further their understanding of technical musical terminology and musical literacy.

 

Local Partnerships

 

We have also partnered with local Musical outreach programmes such as Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra and Oxford Opera. These enriching entitlements allow our children experience world of music that they might not come across in their day to day life.

We have also collaborated with Cherwell Theatre Trust to produce a singing and dance video, for which all children across the GLF Oxfordshire cluster learned the same song and worked with a choreographer to memorise a dance routine. This wonderful performing arts opportunity culminated in a day of filming and the production of our very own video featuring children from across our group of schools.
