Music at SJF
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. Music education at St John Fisher engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increases their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon. Pupils learn through the exciting and dynamic ‘Charanga’ scheme of work, and in KS2 their provision is further nourished by specialist instrument and vocal teachers.
Due to the current COVID 19 restrictions we have adapted the long term plan for Music. If you would like any further information please contact the school office.
