At New Road Primary School, our music curriculum aims to help children feel they are musical and develop a life-long love of music.
At New Road, we focus on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that children need to become confident performers, composers, and listeners. Our curriculum introduces children to music from all around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities. Our curriculum follows a spiral curriculum model where previous skills and knowledge are returned to and built upon.
At New Road the music curriculum is delivered using the Charanga resource. This supports teachers knowledge and understanding when delivering the key concepts of the music curriculum as well as drawing on support from Calderdale Music Trust to provide whole class instrumental tuition.
Music is taught from EYFS to Year 6 and is built around a spiral progression to ensure skills are revisited and built upon each year.
