Music at Leatherhead Trinity

We aim to provide all children with musical knowledge and understanding so that they can express themselves, grow in confidence, connect with others and learn about our world. We want to inspire and motivate children  to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills, to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music. Music also plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community and we want children to be proud of their school and their personal contributions.

 

Early Years

All children in Nursery and Reception will be encouraged to explore ways in which they can make music with instruments, their bodies and their voices. They will also be encouraged to and talk about the pulse/beat, rhythm, pitch, structure, dynamics, timbre, texture, tempo: speed, melodic shape and genre of music.

  • use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes
  • play tuned and untuned instruments musically
  • listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and recorded music

Children in KS2 will also be encouraged to:
