At Oakridge Schools Federation we want the music lessons to be fun and inspiring, engaging the children with songs, lyrics and movement. We want the children to reflective and expressive themselves through music, developing their own appreciation for the music. All children are actively encouraged and given the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument in lessons.
To help us achieve this we use the Charanga Music School to support our music teaching, this is an online music scheme provided by Essex Music Services with lots of visual aids and interactive resources to support your children's learning about music. A steady progression plan has been built into Charanga, both within each year group and from one year to the next, ensuring consistent musical development.
At Christmas, Oakridge Schools Federation invite parents to join us for a Christmas Carol Concert to share Christmas songs we have been learning as a school and Key Stage 1 put on a nativity play with lots of singing and dancing.
