Cross Curricular Music

Music can also be used as a tool to support other areas of learning. On this page we explore how our children use music to help them learn and retain information right across our broad and balanced curriculum. From German to History, from Maths to PSHE.

Musical Classroom

Music can be found within every room and within almost every subject of the curriculum at St Joseph's. It is played in the Hive to support learning; in classrooms within the music lessons of course, but also to support further learning. For instance you might hear the Year 3 children learning their times tables through songs. In EYFS and KS1 nursery rhymes and simple songs help us to recall events, such as the Great Fire of London. Year 5 may be learning to play an instrument and the whole school will be using it to praise the word of God.
