Music at Cotsford
At Cotsford Primary School, the children are exposed to music in a variety of different forms. We use Charanga’s Model Music Curriculum, a scheme of work which follows the National Curriculum and guidance around the highest quality teaching of music, 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. Our philosophy of music education is based on the principle that it should be fun and engaging for all concerned, and that every child is a born musician. We believe that music is like magic and that it has a role to play in every aspect of all of our lives, wherever and whoever we are. For this reason, we divide the academic year into six units, each corresponding with one of our six recurring Social Themes, combined with a unique Musical Spotlight.
