Curriculum Co-ordinator: Mrs J. Golding
Music is valued highly at
St Helens as a powerful means of expression.
As well as each class having their own unique class set of percussion instruments, peripatetic lessons are offered on a variety of instruments in KS2.
We have a very popular choir which is offered weekly. Singing is integral throughout school and there is an allocated time to sing every week.
' Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong because of the strong links with the church and the opportunities pupils are given to develop skills in music and art'
'Opportunities to perform in music, drama and sport, and learn a modern language, further enhance this aspect of the school'
Ofsted report March 2015
Each school is allocated 9 hours of contact time each week over the school year. Over the course of that year the children receive regular sessions delivered by a team of inspiring, multiskilled artists and music leaders.
As many pupils as possible will attend a range of after school clubs, which may also include opportunities for parents at some point.
Performance and celebration are essential and will include;
Term 1: a school performance to celebrate achievement and raise the profile of the project.
- Term 2: will involve a performance at the Hubalaboo at Wakefield Theatre Royal on Tuesday 4th April 2017
- Term 3: will conclude with a massive celebration event involving other participating schools.
