National Curriculum for Music
Music is an integral part of life at Mereworth County Primary School and as a foundation subject is taught in every year group.
Weekly singing assemblies are held using the digital resource Sing-Up. We are very proud to be the holders of the Gold Award; evidence of our commitment to singing as a school.
As a foundation subject, children are involved in singing, listening and appraising music, playing instruments and composing. We use a variety of resources including Sing –Up and Charanga an interactive digital scheme.
Throughout the year children are given opportunities to perform in assemblies, Harvest, Christmas and annual concerts and events.
In Year 3 the children benefit from the Sound Hub funding, which is provided by the Government and they receive 5 terms of Ukelele teaching from a qualified music teacher. Year 3 also have the opportunity to play the Djembi drums. In Year 4, the children are introduced to the recorder and this is continued in Year 6.
For our talented musicians and singers there are plenty of opportunities to perform and share their music with others. These include the Christmas Concert, annual Music Extravaganza and Mereworth’s Got Talent.
