MUSIC AT LEATHERHEAD TRINITY
At Leatherhead Trinity we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage all children from the Nursery to Year 6 to participate in a variety of musical experiences which enable them to develop confidence and develop a range of skills. There is a strong focus on singing which takes place in class lessons, dedicated sessions in Collective Worship and performances. There is a KS1 and KS2 choir which offers many opportunities for children to perform to audiences. All children will learn a musical instrument (Ocarina, recorder, glockenspiel, ukulele and keyboard). Through learning a musical instrument children learn to develop the skill of reading music, playing with others, stamina and discipline to practise and improve and confidence to perform. Children will have many opportunities to listen to and perform a range of music from different cultures and genres. They are encouraged to compare and appreciate music by describing the musical elements of pitch, dynamics, timbre, tone, rhythm and beat, and consider their preferences.
The KS1 choir plus Ellie Rickard and Chyna Johnson from Year 3 sang brilliantly at The Youth Day of The Leith Hill Festival. The event took place on Saturday 14th March at Dorking Halls and was one of the last times we were together before schools had to close for the lockdown.
The children sang 'This Old Man' by Bob Chilcott and 'Share The Light' by Bernadette Farrell.
Mrs Boswell was extremely proud of each child's performance. The adjudicator was also very impressed and particularly praised their sense of rhythm, commitment to the performance and ability to show versatility in 2 such contrasting songs. Particular mention was made to Eliyah for her moving solo.
We were awarded The Leith Hill SIlver Plate as the adjudicator's 1st choice.
WELL DONE EVERYONE and thanks To Miss Brewer and Mrs Elston for joining us on the morning
