Music at St Peter's

At St Peter’s, we believe that music is one of the best paths to self-discovery and that it can help to increase our pupil's awareness of the world around them. Our Music curriculum guides children into the creative world of music, allowing them to enhance their knowledge and understanding of sound, listening and movement.

Our Music curriculum is designed to allow all pupils to:


In Key Stage 1, our pupils are taught the basic elements of music such as pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and invented musical notation. Lessons are practical and involve singing and playing a range of instruments. 


In Key Stage 2, our pupils progress in their understanding of the elements of music through whole-class music lessons and group tuition in instruments.  Pupils learn music and composition through class performance projects.


Singing is an integral part of life at St Peter's and is developed in weekly singing assemblies as well as through cross-curricular links to deepen vocabulary and understanding. Weekly accompanied singing also takes place as part of School Mass.
