Music is a unique way of communicating which can inspire and motivate children. It is a vehicle for personal expression and can play an important part in their development. It reflects the culture and society we live in and so the teaching and learning of music helps children to a better understanding of their world. It also plays an important part in making them feel part of a community and so contributes to the Catholic life of the school.
We provide opportunities for all children to
- create, play, perform and enjoy music
- develop the skills to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms
- begin to make judgements about the quality of music
- know and understand how sounds are made and then organised into musical structures
- know how music is made through a variety of instruments
- develop the interrelated skills of performing, composing and appreciating music.
A Night of Entertainment
As part of our MAC, St. Peter’s choir joined with choirs and musicians from Our Lady of Mount Carmel First School, St. Bede’s Middle School and St. Augustine’s High School for an evening of performance and entertainment for the annual MAC Showcase.
St. Peter’s choir sang with confidence and enthusiasm, highlighting all of the hard work they have put in during choir after school club. The audience were very impressed as they stood centre stage, by themselves, under the spotlights singing a variety of songs and showing off their impressive dance moves. The parents and teachers of St. Peter’s are extremely proud of all of the children for their amazing performances and it was an absolute pleasure to see just how much they enjoyed it! Well done children!
St. Peter’s Choir Spread the Spirit of Christmas
Just before we broke up for the Christmas holiday, the boys and girls that make up the St.Peter’s choir visited a local care home to entertain the residents with some Christmas songs and carols. Their beautiful voices and lovely actions put a huge smile on everybody’s face and the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
