The Music curriculum at Wethersfield is based on the National Curriculum for England 2013.
‘Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians and so increase self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen to with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.’
National Curriculum 2013
When teaching music we aim to ensure that all children:
Music teaching at Wethersfield is based on the Charanga Scheme for Primary Class Teachers. Year 3 and 4 children are taught the recorder by an Essex Music teacher and some children have piano lessons during school time.
Links are also made to Music within other subjects where appropriate, so pupils can develop and apply their musical skills.
In the past few years children have sung at the Barbican as part of the, ‘Barnardos’ Choir’, participated in the Braintree Schools’ Music Festival and seen the BBC film, ‘Ten pieces’. This film tells the stories behind a range of classical music, including that of the great composers and is played by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. There is an after school choir club for KS2 pupils. All pupils have participated in iSingPop concerts held at the local church. Reverend Shannon plays the piano for assemblies on a Thursday so that children experience a live performance.
