At Holy Trinity we have a broad and balanced curriculum, rich in knowledge and creativity. Our intention is that we succeed in offering a curriculum for music which delivers the requirements of The National Curriculum for Music which aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Perform, listen to and evaluate a comprehensive range of music
- Sing, create and compose music
- Understand how music is created, produced and communicated with ongoing emphasis on the inter-related dimensions of music: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations
Through the teaching of music at Holy Trinity we want children to have a varied, progressive and well-planned musical experience based on the National Curriculum objectives.
Through varied and comprehensive musical experiences, we intend that music will “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.” (National Curriculum DFE)
- We want them to develop a curiosity of different musical styles and value music from other periods of time, culture and countries.
- Pupils will become confident in performing, both in singing and using a range of instruments. They will be given the opportunity to appreciate recorded and live performances by their peers and musicians.
- Children will take part in class and whole school performances and productions.
