Our aim is to enable, enhance and enrich the music education available to all children at Summerfield Primary School and ensure the requirements of the national curriculum are met. We also want to provide the children with regular opportunities to perform to other classes and parents, whether it be singing or playing a musical instrument, in order to create a positive musical atmosphere throughout the school.
We offer weekly ukulele teaching sessions to year 4. These will be provided by the Birmingham Music Service.
We offer an after school club which is provided by Multicultural Music Making.
We continue to review the music provision to ensure all staff and children experience excellent musical experiences and improve their knowledge and understanding.
The Charanga Musical School Scheme provides teachers at Summerfield Primary School with week-by-week lesson support for each year group in the school. It provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources to support every lesson. This all to ensure an excellent music curriculum is being taught throughout the school.
We continue to build on the bank of instruments within school to support the children’s learning and enhance the opportunity for composition.
We offer CPD to staff in order to develop knowledge and understanding and support them in delivering the Charanga Music School scheme.
The units within the scheme encourage the development of musical skills as the learning progresses through listening and appraising, differing musical activities (including creating and exploring) and performing.
We want our children to understand the relevance of what they are learning within music and to enjoy their musical experiences within school.
We evidence children’s work throughout the school including performances, workshops and after school clubs.
