At Quinton Primary School, we use Charanga to support our teaching of Music. This is an online scheme with lots of visual aids and interactive resources to support your children's learning through a progression of skills which is linked to the National Curriculum.
We are lucky enough to have a music specialist who comes in every Tuesday morning to teach private lessons in guitar and piano. During the afternoon, he teaches whole classes on a rota basis through the year. The children learn how to read music and how to play instruments as a group.
All children from Year 1 up to Year 6 take part in a singing assembly once a week where they learn songs relating to the seasons, well-being or important festivals. The songs learnt include rounds and harmonies. We perform our songs every week during our Worker of the Week assembly which is attended by parents.
Choir club takes place every week after school for those children with a passion for singing. At Christmas time, parents are invited to join children in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 for Christmas concerts. Early Years children put on a nativity play with lots of singing and acting. At the end of Year 6, the children put on a musical for parents and the whole school.
