The music curriculum has been enhanced further by the implementation of a program followed by all teachers called Charanga that uses ICT and interactive resources to cover all areas of the national curriculum. Singing is taught in Key Stage groups by the music co-coordinator and the key stage 2 teachers on a weekly basis and there is a music club run each year by the music coordinator and a musical teaching assistant. In addition to their class music, from Year 3 onwards children have the chance to learn an instrument with our music tutors in weekly music lessons. The instruments children learn currently at Birchwood are the violin, piano, cornet, clarinet and flute.
