Water Primary School

The 'Water' Curriculum


Music inspires creativity. Children are encouraged to develop a love of music and nurture their talent as musicians.

Our schemes of work for Music are taken from the Lancashire Music Service, Charanga. As pupils progress, we aim to develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, listen and appraise. We aim to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. 

Please see our Music policy below for more details.
