The music curriculum at Eastfield aims to provide pupils with opportunities to listen and appraise a wide range of historical periods, genres and styles of music, sing and perform and create their own music through an understanding of rhythm, pitch and tone.
The majority of the curriculum is supported by the resource ‘Charanga’, which provides a broad overview of the history of music as well as opportunities to sing, perform, compose and improvise their own arrangements. Alongside this, children across the school have the opportunity to sing, perform, compose and improvise music linked to their topic work. In Year 4, all pupils have the opportunity to participate in the ‘Wider Opportunities’ program, delivered by the Hull Music Service, where all pupils learn to play a stringed instrument.
- Higher standards and outcomes
