Music is a vital part of our lives. Whether that is listening to, composing, evaluating and simply appreciating what we are hearing, at Ormsgill we believe that music is a commonality in us all no matter who you are.
At Ormsgill, we follow a curriculum which fosters a love and appreciation for music in addition to teaching musical skills and concepts. We use the ‘Charanga’ scheme of work to ensure our music curriculum covers a broad range of skills and gives ample opportunities for learning. Our goal is for children to not only develop musical skills, but for our pupils to enjoy a range of musical experiences in our community and beyond.
Through our music curriculum pupils are invited to:
- Have regular opportunities to appreciate, respond to, compose and perform music (to the class, the school or parents)
- Recognise musical elements of pitch, rhythm, pace, texture, dynamics, structure and timbre within different genres
- Develop and build on musical knowledge and skills throughout the key stages
- Access the opportunity to learn an instrument
- Access extra-curricular musical activities and events
