Subject Leader - Miss Walton


Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. 

How is Music unique to High Legh?

At High Legh, from Reception to Year 4 our teaching of music is supported by a music scheme called Charanga.

Alongside this scheme of work, children learn to pay an instrument.

Y1 Glockenspiels

Y2 Keyboards

Y3 Recorders

Y4 Ukuleles

Year 5 and Year 6 have a bespoke curriculum taught through Love Music Trust where each child is taught how to play and perform as part of a Brass Band.
