Music

Music at St Peter's

 

Music is a language of the emotions. It develops people’s spiritual, social and cultural dimensions, heightening the intellectual, creative and aesthetic faculties, as well as developing coordination, fine motor and social skills. This development of the practical, the analytical and the creative areas of the brain is fundamental to music making.

 

The high quality music education at St Peter's engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increases their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress they develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to perform, compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.

 

Our curriculum is underpinned by quality world music which motivates and engages the children leading to quality music outcomes. The 2014 National Curriculum is followed and delivered through meaningful learning activities.

 

 

All children at St Peter’s sing every day and play a musical instrument each week. We sing in the classroom, the hall, the playground and in Collective Worship. Further singing opportunities are catered for by our Junior and Senior Choir. These rehearse:
