At Beighton Nursery and Infant School we aim to systematically build and layer new knowledge through the use of Charanga Music Scheme which focus on aspects of the National Curriculum.  Children are exposed to Specialist Music Teachers from the Sheffield Music Hub to help deepen knowledge.  They are also exposed to inspirational musicians and have opportunities to listen to music, work with visiting musicians from a variety of cultures and to explore instruments from many different countries. Musical activities are often linked to other curriculum areas in which the elements of listening, composing, singing and performing are incorporated.  Musical performance are celebrated throughout school and in the local community.

All children at Beighton Nursery and Infant School have the opportunity to learn how to play a tuned musical instrument which we are currently focusing on the recorder.  Children have the opportunity to be part of a choir and perform in ensembles and whole class performance.

We will be further enhancing the music curriculum through The Model Music Curriculum (MMC) which contributes towards the steadily increasing development of musicianship:

    • Singing

    • Listening

    • Composing

    • Performing/Instrumental Performance
