Learning, Living, Loving Together in Christ


At the heart of our music curriculum at Our Lady and St Rose of Lima Primary is the goal of inspiring our children to feel musical and foster a life-long love of music. We achieve this through a carefully designed scheme of work from Kapow. This program focuses on nurturing the skills, knowledge, and understanding necessary for children to become confident performers, composers, and listeners.


Our curriculum introduces students to music from diverse cultures and historical periods, teaching them to respect and appreciate the music of various traditions and communities. Through this approach, our students develop essential musical skills, including singing, playing both tuned and untuned instruments, improvising, composing, and actively listening to and responding to music. They also gain insights into the historical and cultural contexts of the music they encounter and learn how to notate music.


Furthermore, our music curriculum helps children develop valuable transferable skills such as teamwork, leadership, creative thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and presentation and performance abilities. These skills are crucial for their overall development as learners and are applicable in various aspects of their lives beyond school.


This comprehensive Music scheme of work ensures that pupils meet the end-of-key-stage attainment targets outlined in the National Curriculum, with aims that align seamlessly with the National Educational Standards.


In addition to our comprehensive music curriculum, we aim to enhance our pupils' love of music by offering co-curricular musical experiences. We achieve this through our Choir and Ukulele after-school clubs, and by continuing to develop Year 4 pupils' ukulele skills into Years 5 and 6.
