Our Music Lead is Mrs Leigh. If you would like to discuss our Music curriculum further, please do not hesitate to contact us.
At Templemoor, Music is embedded into all aspects of school life and our aim is to inspire children to adopt a lifelong love of music.
Music is taught in weekly lessons following the Charanga Musical School scheme of work. This is an engaging and exciting scheme which supports National Curriculum requirements. The scheme provides children with practical, exploratory and child-led approaches to musical learning. Each year group follow a series of units, linked closely to complement other curriculum areas in a fun and exciting way. The Charanga scheme of work allows us to encourage the development of musical skills through listening and appraising, comparing of genre, creating and exploring and performing.
All children also take part in class assemblies where they learn and sing a range of songs. At Christmas, Early Years and Key Stage 1 children put on separate nativity plays with lots of singing and dancing!
To support our music teaching and provide engaging opportunities for our pupils, we invite guests into our school. Recently we have had visits from Moorlands School Orchestra and Key Strings.
Our aim is for children to be given the opportunity to gain an appreciation and understanding of the many benefits that music can offer. We aspire to give children the confidence to perform, create and explore, using music to express their feelings and create a positive and fun learning environment.
We also work in close partnership with Trafford Music Service. A specialist instrumental teacher will teach music for a 10 week period assisted by the class teacher culminating in a concert for parents and carers. Pre Covid the children have taken part in:
Reception – Little Voices (Spring Term)
Year 1 – Ocarina (Summer Term)
Year 2 - Ukulele (Autumn Term)
This is a fantastic opportunity and often leads to children taking up individual music lessons for that instrument. A link to Trafford Music Service can be found by clicking on the link below:
We are delighted to have achieved the Music mark Award for our commitment to ensuring that children at Templemoor are able to access and engage with a high-quality music education.
