Scope and Sequence

A complete Scheme of Work for your school

The Charanga Musical School Scheme provides teachers with week-by-week lessons for each year group in the school from ages 5-11.

It is ideal for specialist and non-specialist teachers and provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources for every lesson.

Musical School Learning

Charanga Musical School interactive resources

The learning within this Scheme is based on:

  • Listening and Appraising
  • Musical Activities — creating and exploring
  • Singing and Performing.

Everything is clearly and simply explained and the planning support is extensive.

Interactive Teaching Resources

Because the on-screen resources are so visual and supportive and everything is at your fingertips, every lesson is full of music and the children enjoy every moment.

Musical School Assessment

We’ve looked at all the great thinking that has been done on assessment and created an easy-to-use framework that’s useful for both music specialists and non-specialists.

In essence, there are three aspects to the assessment:

  • End of Key Stage Expectations with the expected musical learning against which to assess
  • One-page lesson plans with the facility for you to formatively (continuously) assess
  • A digital evidence storage facility to help you build a musical E profile for classes and individual pupils

Updates to Musical School Scheme this year

We constantly seek to improve what we do and respond to the feedback we get from teachers.

Charanga Musical School updates

Among other things, you will see an updated Scheme with more progressive Listening & Appraising and Musical Activities devised to give extra variety and to challenge older children.

Charanga Musical School updates

We have added new units including the classic songs ‘Blackbird’ and ‘Happy’ to keep the teaching and learning fresh for both the teacher and the children and made changes to the autumn half-term units to give more options and flexibility.

The end of year Reflect, Rewind and Replay units have been revised to develop general musicianship with more on the history and language of music yet still provide the opportunity to consolidate and celebrate the learning that has taken place.

I think Charanga is absolutely fantastic. I use the rhythm grids as a starter activity in all my classes and the pupils’ understanding of rhythm, the accuracy with which they perform has really improved.

I use the recorder course with my clubs and they love all the songs. This half term I’m also teaching the hip hop topic with my y6s and it’s going really well. I look forward to some more exciting resources.
