Music Long Term Plan

At Salterhebble, our Music curriculum aims to help children feel they are musical and develop a life-long love of music.

We focus on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that children need to become confident performers, composers, and listeners. Our curriculum introduces children to music from all around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities. Our curriculum follows a spiral curriculum model where previous skills and knowledge are returned to and built upon.

The music curriculum at Salterhebble is underpinned by Charanga. This supports teachers’ knowledge and understanding when delivering the key concepts of the music curriculum as well as drawing on support from the Music Hub to provide whole class instrumental tuition in Year 2 where the children learn to play the recorder.

Music is taught from EYFS to Year 6 and is built around a spiral progression to ensure skills are revisited and built upon each year.

We currently have a KS2 choir which is led by Mrs Durance from Calderdale Music Hub after school on a Thursday.

Through Calderdale Music Trust, pupils can undertake music lessons. These are private lessons that take place in school; parents agreed arrangement is with the Music Trust.
