Music Curriculum

At Styal Primary School, we follow Charanga music units. Each unit comprises the strands of musical learning which correspond to the national curriculum for Music. 

1. Listening and appraising

2. Musical activities - warm up games, singing, playing instruments, improvisation, composition

3. Performing

The units enable the children to understand musical concepts through a repetition-based approach to learning. Learning about the same musical concept through different musical activities enables a more secure, deeper learning and mastery of musical skills.

Styal primary School follows a two year rolling programme.

The structure of our lessons follows the same sequence:

a. Listen and appraise

b. Musical activities

c. Perform / share

Our Music curriculum is interspersed with extra musical activities such as Christmas performances, the local Music Festival and carol singing for the community.

Our Music teacher, from our cose links with Manchester University,  teaches a range of instruments on a 1:1 basis. Lessons are held in school. This allows us to support disadvantaged or gifted musicians.
