Greenacres Primary Academy (South Pennine Academies)

Respect, Responsibility and Really Good Manners

Our Music Intent



In their music lessons, pupils use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes. Assemblies will also provide an opportunity to practise singing. Pupils will also be taught to play a variety of instruments musically and encouraged to play together in ensemble groups. We encourage listening to a wide range of music with concentration and understanding. Music lessons are sometimes linked to themed work and music is used in a variety of lessons and activities to create, mood, atmosphere and to help thinking. The 'Charranga' programme supports our teaching of music across the school and we have an experienced choir who benefit from a specialist teacher.
