Music is a big part of school life at Sacred Heart, both in our set lessons and in the celebration of our faith. Music is taught by a specialist teacher - Mr Watson to the EYFS, KS1 and Year 6 on a weekly basis, covering all different aspects of the curriculum. Children have the opportunity to experiment with instruments in a group and independently as well as sing and use their bodies to create rhythm.
Music is also celebrated through our hymn practises and our visits to the church to celebrate feast days and also our class masses.
Children in KS2 have the opportunity to learn the recorder with Miss Bacon and also the violin with our specialist teacher Mrs Curtin and perform at different school events throughout the year. The Sacred Heart Choir consists of children in Year 4-6 and we perform at large events each year such as the Thames Festival, Young Voices at the O2 and Voice in a Million at Wembley. The choir hold weekly practises on a Friday lunch time with Mrs Smith the choir leader and Miss Palmer, leader of Music.
Upcoming dates for the Choir are:
Curriculum Evening at School 23rd March, 7pm
Pure Voices at Union Chapel, date TBC
Please see below for the websites for these events as well as useful information and different games and songs the children can use.
Today we were lucky enough for the Strings Club to come in and visit us and teach us all about the Guitar and its different parts. We had fun singing along to the different chords, we sang You are my Sunshine and Row Row Row your boat!
