At Broad Square Primary School we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build the confidence of all our children. We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music. We follow an online scheme of work called 'Charanga Musical School,' which supports all the requirements of the new National Curriculum and is absolutely in line with published Ofsted guidance. This is used to teach music throughout the school. This scheme provides exciting units of work for the children from Reception right the way up to Year 6. The learning within this scheme is based on: Listening and Appraising; Musical Activities - creating and exploring; and Singing and Performing. In addition to this, our school works very closely with our local music education hub, 'Resonate' and through them we receive wider opportunities specialist guitar tuition for our Year 4 pupils. Children across the school are also given the opportunity to take part in music clubs, such as percussion, recorder club and choir. Our choir works in collaboration with other Liverpool schools to celebrate a love of singing at the annual iSing concert.
