Music at Cotsford
At Cotsford Primary School, the children are exposed to music in a variety of different forms. We use Charanga, a scheme of work which follows the National Curriculum, to deliver our Music lessons in school each week. Charanga allows the children to experience a range of musical genres and styles and introduces children to the different dimensions of music at an accessible level. In class, children have the opportunity to play musical games and play percussion instruments as they progress through the curriculum. Each week, a class will focus on a certain song of a particular style and have the opportunity to listen, play and sing along to explore the different features of the music.
In KS2 children also have the opportunity to receive music lessons from Durham Music Service professionals. Year 3 are currently learning to play the recorder with a music teacher from Durham Music Service. There are also opportunities for individual music tuition in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
