At SS Peter & Paul we consider Music a universal form of communication, one through which children of all ages can be encouraged to express their ideas and feelings.
Mrs Wallbridge our music specialist teaches Foundation stage through to Year 6. The weekly lessons provide the children with a wealth of musical experiences and opportunities to develop their skills and understanding of how music is made. The content of the music curriculum includes using sounds and music to make responses, singing in parts as well as unison, playing a whole array of percussion and other instruments; composition and music appreciation. There is also a programme of music appreciation so that children learn about composers and their works.
We have our own Orchestra / String ensemble run by Mrs Wallbridge after school on Mondays.
In Key stage 1 & 2 children may choose to learn an instrument. We offer the following choices: recorder, guitar, piano, violin, clarinet and cello.
Music plays a major part in school through assemblies, masses and performances and children have many opportunities to participate by singing or playing their instrument.
We enjoy opportunities to sing together in class, at assemblies and in church. KS 1 & 2 have singing practice. Children in years 3, 4, 5 & 6 are invited to join the popular school choir (run by Miss White) which meets weekly on Tuesdays and performs regularly in school, church and the wider community.
