Music lessons at St Jerome's follow the National Curriculum and are based around composing, performing and listening. These are taught through a variety of thematic projects which allow students to discover the elements of music by exploring their own instruments and voices, music technology, world music and music from our own culture, both classical and popular.
To support the teaching of music, we use Charanga Music School, who provide a progressive scheme of work, and interactive resources for vocal and instrumental tuition. Clear and well thought out sequences of learning with key assessment tasks ensure that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before. Discrete lessons are delivered with learning blocked to allow for clear progression in the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills, built on prior learning.
