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 Howarth to the EYFS, KS1 and Year 6. KS1 and Year 6 have weekly sessions and EYFS rotate their sessions on a half termly 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, our visits to the church to celebrate feast days and also our class Masses. We also showcase the children’s talents through our very own talent show ‘Sacred Heart’s Got Talent’. Keep an eye out in the newsletter for information on our next talent show.
Children in KS2 have the opportunity to learn the recorder with Mrs Price,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 charity concerts including the Barnardos concert at the Royal Albert Hall. The choir hold weekly practises on a Friday after school from 3:45-4:45 with Mrs Smith, the Choir Leader, and Miss Palmer, Leader of Music.
We also now have a guitar after school club run by ‘The Strings Club’ company for children in KS2. For more information about this club please see the office or Miss Palmer.
Please see below for the websites for these events as well as useful information and different games and songs the children can use.
