At Barlow, our music curriculum aims to develop a wealth of musical opportunity. The children are encouraged to express themselves musically using their voice and a variety of instruments. They build musical knowledge including a variety of key vocabulary. A variety of musical genres are included so that children understand how music has changed over time and the different styles across the world.
At Barlow, we teach music through the charanga programme. This includes listening to and appreciating music, simple composition and opportunities to perform.
Alongside this we offer additional performance opportunities as part of our collective worship and service in church programme. All children in Key Stage Two will learn an instrument as part of the Wider Opportunities Programme. Each child will also have the opportunity to take part in the Young Voices concert at Sheffield Arena.
The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
Currently, we offer children the opportunity to have extra-curricular lessons in flute, clarinet, keyboard and singing.
Mrs Karen Cook is our instrumental teacher and Mrs Effie Hodgkinson is our singing coach.
If your child is interested in taking up music lessons, please contact the school office.
Discounts are available if you are in receipt of certain benefits or your child has free school meals.
Young voices is a nationwide concert programme involving thousands of young people. In January 2015, we took part for the first time, singing with over 4000 other children at Sheffield arena. We will be repeating this experience in January 2016 and then will look at making this a regular feature of school life at least every other year.
