Music at Holy Family Catholic Primary School                                                     


  • Our children will learn that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity
  • Lessons engage and inspire the children to have a love of music, develop their talent as musicians and increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement
  • They will engage in a critical engagement of music, allowing them to compose and listen to a wide variety of musical forms



  • We use the “Charanga” scheme of work from EYFS to Year 6 to ensure a wide exposure of different music genres, with opportunities for practical sessions where they are able to explore and develop as musicians and singers
  • Through listening and appraising music, the children learn about the structure and organisation of the different genres
  • The children develop descriptive language skills in the lessons and are able to express how the music makes the feel and the story that the music tells
  • The children learn technical vocabulary such as: volume, pitch, beat and rhythm
  • They are given the opportunity to deepen and develop their love of music by learning to play instruments such as the ukulele and various types of percussion



  • Our children learn to work both independently and as part of a group, ensuring skills of resilience and teamwork are promoted in this subject and other areas of the curriculum
  • Opportunities to perform
  • Ensure that our children recognise and understand the significance of music within the wider world
  • Use their knowledge of music within other areas of the curriculum

This week we held our first ever Musical Showcase.  Every child was included and enjoyed the opportunity to perform in front of an audience.
