Music

Intent Statement

At Sutton Green, it is our intent to provide children with exciting and memorable musical experiences, both in class and as a whole school and extra-curricularly.  We teach the skills set out in the National Curriculum and EYFS Development Matters.   

Implementation

In music we follow the Charanga programme, which ensures progression of music skills throughout the year groups and provides interesting and practical musical activities.  Our children are taught skills of singing, performance, pulse and rhythm, composition, notation, music appreciation, listening and significant people.  Our regular singing assemblies and Year 5 brass instrument tuition provide additional musical opportunities for our children and through our Charanga subscription we have access to songs and music which we use to complement our topics.  In addition, through our links with Edsential and Amasing, we offer opportunities for children to take part in concerts, showcases and workshops.  We provide our children with experience of listening to a wide range of music, and to support this we have 'Music Mondays', during which we play different genres and styles of music in the dinner hall.  We regularly take up musical opportunities within our local community, including taking part in the Amasing online concert and performance and harvest festival and Christmas concert at a local church.  We have also recently welcomed a visit from a local musician to teach our Year 6 class.  As a recognition of our committment to providing high-quality music education we were recently invited and accepted the opportunity to become a 'Music Mark' School.  Our school offers RAD Music Tuition in drums, guitar and piano during the school day.  Additionally, through our extra-curricular clubs, we offer music based activities, which prove very popular with our children, including our school choir.    

Impact

Our children are confident with the music skills taught and can apply these in their own work.  They have the ability to discuss, compare and evaluate their music pieces and the works of others.
