All pupils at Acre Heads have access to a broad, balanced and enriching Music curriculum (Charanga) through a spiral designed scheme of work with the following key principles in mind:
Cyclical: Pupils return to the key areas again and again during their time at Acre Heads.
Increasing Depth: Each time a key area is revisited it is covered with greater complexity.
Prior Knowledge: Upon returning to each key area, prior knowledge is utilised so pupils can build upon previous foundations, rather than starting again
Progression throughout the Units of work reinforces the interrelated dimensions of music. With each new song, the foundations of pulse, then rhythm, then pitch are conducted whilst adding new dimensions. This represents the increasing spiral of learning.
Where possible, key Music units are allocated into linked curriculum themes or taught as discreet areas. The Music Long Term Plan (LTP) outlines the units to be covered by each year group. These units and associated objectives form the Scheme of Work for each year group ensuring a basis of retrieving and developing knowledge as detailed in the Music Road Map.
