Our ambition for music at Marshland Primary Academy:

The music curriculum at Marshland Primary Academy equips children to:

  • sing and perform to an audience with enjoyment and confidence.
  • appreciate music, musicians and composers from a range of genres and periods of time.
  • play a musical instrument and read musical notation.
  • develop a love of music and value and appreciate music as a soundtrack to life.
  • dream about being employed as part of the future generation of musicians.

Long term plan

  • Children are exposed to music from their early days in Marshland’s nursery provision. They learn to experiment with sounds and enjoy listening to and taking part in rhymes and songs.

    From reception, music lessons are taught in line with the ‘Charanga’ scheme of work. ‘Charanga’ comprises of a series of units that expose children to a range of types and genres of music. Each unit is planned as a sequence of weekly lessons, culminating in an end-of-unit performance. Throughout the units, children have the opportunity to listen, sing, play, improvise, compose and appraise.
