Music is an essential part of life at St Peter’s for every year group from Nursery to Year 6. Each class has a weekly lesson that covers a wide range of activities throughout the year including : listening, composing and performing.
Singing features in all assemblies, masses and class liturgies. Every Christmas EYFS and KS1 produce a musical nativity play and all KS2 take part in their respective carol services. As a school we join with other schools in the diocese and perform at the Brentwood Centre.
All Year 5 children have weekly brass lessons and some children continue this learning to Year 6 where they receive small group tuition on their chosen instrument. A number of children have weekly drumming lessons . This term also sees the start of the Year 4/5 Pop Choir.
At the end of Year 6, as part of their leaving celebration children take part in their musical production. Concerts by all groups are a regular feature of the school term and parents are invited to attend.
