Music Subject Leader is Miss Wallbanks
Our curriculum intent for music is that every child will:
At Holy Trinity, we believe that music is vital part of the children's education and imperative for developing children's creativity, self- confidence, social and personal development as well as their language skills. Music is used to unite the school, providing many opportunities for children to perform together, share their talents and develop self confidence. We provide positive learning experiences which are enjoyable, rewarding and aim to develop every child's sense of achievement. We generate an environment which is supportive and flexible to allow for creativity and self expression.
Where possible, music is taught through the topic and we use Charanga to support our teaching. We offer all pupils the opportunity to learn a musical instrument through Berkshire Maestros organisation. All pupils are given the opportunity to sing/ perform in class assemblies as well as Harvest and Easter services. EYFS and KS1 perform their own nativity every year and KS2 present a Christmas carol service at the Holy Trinity Church. Year 6 perform their end of year show which is supported by years 4 and 5.
Each class from EYFS to year 6 has a weekly singing assembly providing all pupils with the opportunity to listen, sing, compose, perform and appraise music. Children are encouraged to share their musical talents by playing and performing to the school in solo and ensemble contexts.
