Music at St. Peter's
Music plays a central part to life here at St. Peter's. It has been at the heart of many different events that have occurred at St. Peter’s school.
Children enjoy learning to play several different instruments, including the ocarina, ukulele, recorder and percussion. Furthermore, Maple, Beech , Oak and Chestnut (Years 5 and 6 children) benefit from specialist music tuition from Lancashire Music Service.
Singing goes from strength to strength at St. Peter’s. Over the years the choir has performed at a variety of venues, including Manchester Arena, The Guild Hall in Preston, Chorley Town Hall, Westholme Independent School and more locally Fosterfields Day Centre which is just along the road from school.
We give the children opportunities to experience live music whenever possible - their reactions to these experiences are wonderful to see!
Year 5 had a great time taking part in their first bucket drumming session...
Hawthorn Class love learning their ocarina instrument. This is a 4 holed wind instrument originally from south America.
We have learned new songs each session, played as soloists, duets, quartets and as a whole orchestra.
We have learnt a new game with 'Twinkle Twinkle' during which a child counts us in when another child is tapped on the shoulder, they must stop playing. It's nerve-wracking for the last person playing!
We have played as a 4 group round for 'London's Burning'.
We follow oc-pix notation which has moved on from ocarina shape to squares. Today we learnt how to keep a beat of 4 with a semi-breve.
Our songs so far:
Twinkle Little Star
Au Clair de la Lune
