St Boniface RC Primary School

One who does good

 

Music                                      

St Boniface values the importance of music in children’s everyday lives.

Music is taught weekly and children from Year 1-6 receive specialist music teaching during the year. They learn the important musical skills of composition, singing, listening and appreciation.

Whole School - Each phase or class learn carols that we perform online (COVID) or at St Boniface Church in our December Carol concert and the school choir and brass band traditionally perform here too.

School choir: The choir holds rehearsals every Friday morning at 8am for Key Stage 2 and is free to join. They learn a variety of challenging songs that involves harmonies and they get to develop different vocal skills. The choir also gets invited to sing with other schools for the Catholic Choirs Concert in the Spring term and it is a wonderful performance opportunity for them.

Flute - Flute lessons via Wandsworth Music happen in school two days a week. Lessons are available either as a part of a group or on an individual basis. It’s a great opportunity to learn an orchestral instrument and also participate in all school concerts. The flute is a great instrument to play for all ages, ideally year 2 upwards. If your child has previously learnt the recorder they will transition easily to the flute as it has similar fingerings. For more information contact Wandsworth Music directly and join in the flute fun we have in school. 

Year 4 – Every child in Year 4 learns a brass instrument taught by Wandsworth Music, please see our Brass tab for more information.

Brass Band - See our Brass tab for more information.
