Our intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing. We believe that all children are capable of becoming confident, expressive performers. We intend to allow the music curriculum to flow through the entirety of the school. We want to ensure that music is closely intertwined with each class topic to build an immersive learning environment.

Live music at Holy Family!

The whole school had a lovely visit from the Music Hub! We listened to live instruments being played and we even had the opportunity to ask lots of questions. It was great fun and we even had the opportunity to dance to some of our favourite songs!

Year 2- Friendship Song

Year 3 - Bringing Us Together

Year 4- 'Lean on me'

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

The children in year 5 have enjoyed learning the iconic theme tune to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. They have played dancing games to identify the beat and rhythm of the song and played along on the glockenspiels using the notes A and D. Take a look at children in action.

Reception childrfen learnt the song, 'We Gather Together' They took musical instruments outside and used them to accomany the song. 

What a fantastic, enjoyable and amazing experience the children in our choir from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 had at Young Voices at Sheffield Arena. Not forgetting the teachers and parents too! From the rehearsals to the performance, everyone was enthusiastic and joined in with songs, dances and routines. It was a truely inspiring event!

Our school choir had a wonderful time at Young Voices 2022. This took place at Sheffield Arena where the children sang and danced with lots of other primary schools, showcasing everything they had been learning in their Choir after school club. Well done everyone!

Year 5- Dancing in the Street

Calling out around the world- are you ready for a brand new beat?

Year 5 certainly are! 

The class enjoyed listening to a range of Motown hits and discussed the songs before picking their favourite. We then explored the history of Dancing in the Street and played games to find the beat before learning the first verse and bridge. We can't wait to perform the song later in the term.

Year 4 - Blackbird

Year 4 have started to learn their new song on Charanga which is Blackbird by The Beatles. We listened to the song, found out some interesting facts and then played some pulse and rhythm games. The children then started to learn the song verse by verse and the chorus. The children did really well learning this song so quickly!

Year 5 loved playing glockenspiels!

Year 5 have really enjoyed finding the pulse in a piece of music and then playing glockenspiels to the pulse. 

Year Two- I wanna play in a band

This term our Charanga song is called 'I wanna play in a band'. We have loved all the warm up exercises, learning the song and experiencing playing a recorder. We have had so much fun! Enjoy our performance!
