AT THE HEART OF OUR MUSIC CURRICULUM ISEncouraging creativity
& learning skills

Teaching music can have numerous benefits for primary school children from helping with behaviour and confidence to encouraging creativity and learning skills that can be used across many subjects. Children have the opportunity to enjoy musical experiences through listening, singing, movement and dance and by playing tuned and un-tuned percussion. At St. Paul’s we use Charanga, a music scheme, throughout the whole school to allow for clear progression. Teachers use engaging and exciting whiteboard resources for every lesson.

In Key Stage 1, the main focus is on the United Kingdom and the local area. In Key Stage 2, the focus moves beyond the local area to include Europe and North and South America. Through the teaching of Geography, we can help children to: develop their knowledge and understanding of the world; build a sense of what is where in the world and the ways in which things are connected; engage with the wondrous and hazardous nature of the world; develop a sense of responsibility for the Earth’s environments, places and people and identify, describe and communicate about places and environments. We enhance learning in the classroom with field trips to significant geographical places in the local area and by inviting visitors into school. Where possible, we utilise links with other subjects, for example, art and design and design technology. The Geography curriculum is also closely linked to the English text-based curriculum but only where there are good quality texts that link to the topics.

What will you learn?

MUSICCreative Arts Evening

In the summer term, St. Paul’s holds a Creative Arts evening, where children who have been learning an instrument can perform in front of an audience and show off their talents.  This is a spectacular evening, enjoyed by parents, carers, grandparents and governors.

For several years, St. Paul’s has had a wonderful school choir which sings at a number of places e.g. at a residential home for the elderly, at St. Paul’s church, at Bedworth Civic Hall and at Resorts World in Birmingham.  Five years ago, the children’s choir also took part in a Free Radio competition to find the best school choir and St. Paul’s successfully won and became the Christmas stars.  The school has also taken part in Young Voices along with around 6000 other school children to become the largest choir concert in the world.  Our children have always enjoyed this experience – a truly breath-taking experience.
