Celebrating Success


At Kings Meadow we aim to offer a wide range of activities to develop the children's skills as musicians.


Our Curriculum


We use a variety of resources to develop the children's musical skills in addition to making links to the Curriculum that they are learning about each term.


Charanga - is an online scheme that is used to develop children's musical skills.  It builds upon the skills learnt in previous years and covers a wide variety of musical styles.  As part of these units of work, the children also focus on learning through practical experience. 


Each unit develops the following skills:


1. Listening Skills.

2. Improvisation.

3. Composing.

4. Singing.

5. Performing.
