At Star of the Sea, the Music Curriculum is delivered through a wide variety of opportunities. Teaching is delivered weekly using the North Tyneside Music Hub program, Charanga. This provides progressive learning within each year group, as children grow in their love of music during their time at Star of the Sea. Children have access to music and singing during Collective Worship, as a class, within their own key stage and as a whole school. In addition, Star of the Sea offers children the chance to take part in the School Choir.
Children have the opportunity to access additional resources including, ‘Rock Steady Friday’ and ‘Sing Up’. Star of the Sea also works with North Tyneside Music Hub, to provide opportunities for children to collaborate with other schools.
Peripatetic teaching is offered at Star of the Sea. We have a variety of teachers providing an exciting range of one to one lessons from guitar to drums!
