We aim for our children to be able to use their voices expressively in different contexts; to have a good understanding of a range of instruments; and to have opportunities to play both tuned and untuned instruments. They will know that music and instruments have developed and evolved over time and that music can be formed in a range of different styles.
These skills will provide the children with an appreciation of music and the power it can have to bring people together.
Music at Woodside is supported by the Charanga programme of study. It has been carefully sequenced to ensure knowledge and skills are built upon and developed over time.
Children's musical skills and knowledge are assessed using the criteria provided by Charanga, that is in line with the National Curriculum for Music.
