Music at St Bridget's


Primary Music National Curriculum

Music in Key Stage 1

Early Years and Key Stage 1 follow the 'Charanga' music scheme. This scheme provides the children with opportunities: 

  • To use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes.
  • To play tuned and untuned instruments musically.
  • To listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and recorded music.
  • To experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions of music.

Please see the below documents for the unit overviews in Key Stage 1.

Visit the 'Knowledge Organisers' page to gain a deeper understanding of your child's learning in music each term.
