Music at Lower Meadow
Music is all around us. It is the soundtrack to our lives. Music connects us through people and places in our ever-changing world. At Lower Meadow our music curriculum, driven by new vocabulary and language development, is ambitiously designed to be creative, collaborative, celebratory and challenging. In our school, music brings our whole school community together through whole-school singing, experimenting with the creative process and, through the love of listening to friends and fellow pupils, performing.
The curriculum builds on the Early Years Foundation Stage Expressive Arts and Design where children have explored a variety of media and materials including singing songs and making music to develop pupils’ imagination, creativity and ability.
We follow the Charanga Musical School Scheme which supports all the requirements of the national curriculum.
We believe this scheme is right for our children because it has core values of experience alongside a knowledge-rich music curriculum. This is essential at Lower Meadow to ensure our children understand the wider world and the opportunities that are available to them. We want all our children to have the opportunities to experience the wider world and develop their language and knowledge to support their ambitions for the future.
We want to see our pupils develop a life-long love of music, increase in their self-confidence, creativity, and imagination, through a rich and relevant music curriculum that provides opportunities for self-expression and a sense of personal achievement.
