Curriculum Overview

Here at Holy Trinity we aim to foster a love and passion for music. We do this through delivering high quality music teaching and giving lots of opportunities to listen to and take part in musical activities. It is our role to encourage and support all children to achieve their full potential. 

Our music curriculum is taught in blocks to give the children greater periods of time develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of music. Each block of work provides opportunities to listen to a variety of music, use the untuned/tuned percussion instruments and develop skills of performing, composing & appraising. We follow the National Curriculum 2014 and provide opportunities to experience and appreciate the richness and diversity of world cultures, styles, times and periods and for the children to develop personal expression, reflection and emotional development through music making, both individually and together. Weekly singing assemblies, our junior carol concert, assemblies, productions and concerts all provide important opportunities for the children to perform, share and enjoy music through singing, playing and listening to music.

At Holy Trinity we offer a range of additional musical opportunities in which the pupils can be involved in such as Musicmakers, Infant choir and Ukele club for in the Infants and Recorders, Percussion Band and Junior choir for the juniors. The Richmond Music Trust offer a variety of instrumental lessons such as piano, guitar, violin, percussion and brass. Extra-curricular music trips are also offered, giving children the opportunity to perform alongside the wider community, for example, at the Rose Theatre, Kingston, as part of the Richmond Singing Festival, the Young Voices choir concert at the O2 arena, the instrumental concert, the Big Racket and the Summer Concert. Opportunities for cross-curricular links are also taken, wherever possible, to link music with other subject areas and topics.
