At Sylvester Primary Academy, it is the intent that our children will gain a strong understanding of what music is through; listening and appraising, singing and playing instruments, evaluating, analysing and composing across a variety of music genres, historical periods, styles and traditions. Our aim is for pupils to develop a love of music and to expand their understanding of music and performance; ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community.
Our music curriculum is taught through Charanga Musical School from Reception to Year 6. Charanga incorporates many opportunities to listen to a range of artists, sing and play instruments. As children progress through school, they are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of contexts. We provide a music curriculum that empowers individuals to partake in one of the highest art forms, that promotes self-confidence, self-esteem and gives all pupils a sense of achievement.
