Music

How does Thornton teach Music?

This year we are introducing and following the Charanga Music school scheme of work. Charanga is a living cloud-based resource that brings together great music, modern pedagogy and the latest educational technology. It supports all aspects of music in school. The learning within this scheme is based on Listening and Appraising; Musical Activities - creating and exploring, and Singing and Performing.

Musical School contains a substantial Song Centre with nursery rhymes, chants and action songs for younger children, and classical repertoire and well-known favourites by Abba, Bon Jovi and Adele for older children.
