"Music can change the world,"- Beethoven

Music at Swimbridge



Swimbridge Primary School uses Charanga to support the teaching of Music from Reception to Year 6. Charanga is an award winning programme that offers an integrated, practical and explorative approach to learning music. It allows children to fulfil the statutory National Curriculum requirements for Music in a fun, engaging and practical way. The units of work allow children to develop their knowledge of musical vocabulary and concepts using a repetition approach to learning.  The children build on their skills to enable them to perform a final piece at the end of each unit. They participate in singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, composition, improvisation and listening to live and recorded music.

Each year group completes a unit of work from the scheme every other term. Each unit of work focuses on the strands of musical learning which corresponds with the National Curriculum objectives for Music:
