At Clayton Brook Primary School, we use the Charanga Musical School Scheme of Work to cover all aspects of the National Curriculum. Each class are taught at least three units per academic year that involve: listening and appraising music, singing, playing instruments, improvising and composing. Each unit has a fantastic finish of a performance by the children. In Years 3 and 4, the children are taught how to play the glockenspiel so have plenty of practice playing and reading music.
