The Music Curriculum at Thomas Harding


Our Intent Statement


Our Music curriculum fosters the enjoyment and appreciation of music at the same time as developing creativity and technical ability. The essential skills of music are taught regularly to enable children to develop vocal, rhythmic and instrumental skills, as well as an understanding of musical traditions, styles and cultures. Music topics are sequenced so that children’s knowledge and skills develop progressively throughout topics and each year group.

Children can also select from a variety of instruments to learn with a specialist teacher, including guitar, recorder, flute, clarinet, saxophone, keyboard and brass instruments. In addition to this, children have the opportunity to join our orchestra and choir. The choir and orchestra perform at local events and the choir has even performed at the O2 Arena.
