The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
At Hexham First we use the ‘Charanga Music School’ scheme of work which supports all of the requirements of the National Curriculum and gives children access to a wide range of musical concepts and experiences. The ‘Charanga Musical School’ Scheme provides teachers with week-by-week lesson support for each year group in the school. It is ideal for specialist and non-specialist teachers and provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources to support every lesson.
We have invested in a music specialist in key stage 2 who gives specialist music teaching above and beyond what is provided by Charanga.
Key stage 2 are taking part in Opera North which involves specialist training from opera singers who come in to school and train pupils for the performance that takes part in the Queens Hall in Hexham.
Year 2 take part in a Sankta Lucia celebration with a Swedish choir.
