At Cranborne we are committed to providing the children with high-quality Music lessons. Music lessons are taught using a specialist website called Charanga Music. This website allows the milestones across the age ranges, from EYFS to Year 6, to be comprehensively covered through a range of songs and fun activities. Children begin in Reception to sing and recite action songs and by Year 6 they are able to compose music on different instruments.
September 2021 sees the implementation of the new Model Music Curriculum. This has a huge focus on the children's listening skills in order to develop their performing skills. The new scheme will be rolled out across the school this term and we are excited to see the children participate in music again after COVID. Each year group, with the exception of year 5, will listen to and sing different styles of music. In year 5 the children will learn to play the guitar in small group sessions. This will develop their musical skill through listening and performing. The curriculum overview is displayed below.
