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 at The Palace Theatre in Redditch
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 on the evening of Tuesday 27th February. St. Peter’s choir sang with confidence and enthusiasm which resulted in a very impressed audience, particularly a group of proud parents and teachers. They sang and danced to a selection of songs they had learnt for the ‘Young Voices’ concert that took place in January at the Genting Arena, Birmingham. The children joined a 6000 strong choir made up of children from schools across the midlands. For the showcase, however they sang by themselves, under the spotlight on a stage to a packed audience. They were amazing and we are so proud of the children.
