Music at Trinity

Music at Trinity

At Trinity Primary School, we value music because it is a powerful and unique form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act. It also increases self-discipline and creativity, aesthetic sensitivity and fulfilment. The teaching of music at Trinity will allow children to experience a range of cultures, styles and time-periods developing a value and curiosity of the wider world. We aim to provide all our children with the building blocks of skills and knowledge to experience success and make progress throughout their lives.


By the time our children finish at Trinity Primary School we ensure they are able to:

  • Develop control and understanding of duration, pitch, tempo, texture, dynamics and structure
  • Communicate their musical ideas with others
  • Improve their instrumental and vocal techniques
  • Listen to music with sustained attention
  • Sing and play songs from memory


How do we teach Music at Trinity?

In Music, each year group completes approximately 6 sessions of music each term. This may be in the form of preparation for a production or a Charanga topic. Each class in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 will complete one term of instrumental music tuition (ukulele and brass). Each area of learning will allow children to regularly experience different aspects of music (singing, performing, composing, improvising and musicianship). Planning for music lessons must follow the Charanga scheme of work.
