Music

At All Saints’, we believe that every child should receive high quality musical experiences from a variety of cultures and traditions, and that music should play an integral part in our school life and worship.
Every child will have the chance to learn an instrument and develop their voice, with a variety of opportunities to perform and compose. The music curriculum often reflects class topics, in order to enhance the pupils’ learning, and enrichment opportunities are organised with Peterborough Music Hub, so that pupils experience live performances and professional musicians.
In music, creativity is encouraged, and the environment  allows every child to achieve and be confident that they can have a go and express themselves.

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning”
- Plato

Dear parent/guardian,

 

Your child is invited to participate in our gifted and talented singing day on Saturday 11th June.

 

Peterborough Sings! are offering this day, free of charge, as part of the Peterborough Music Hub city-wide singing strategy.

 

The day has been devised to provide more confident singers the opportunity to work with award- winning choral director William Prideaux, and to rehearse and perform with other gifted and talented young singers from across the city. 

 

Date:     Saturday 11th June

 

Time:    1.00pm – 5.00pm

 

Venue:  All Saints’ Church, Park Road, Peterborough, PE1 2UL

 

Children should have their lunch before they arrive, bring a water bottle with them, and a couple of snacks for breaks. The children will be supervised by our team of Peterborough City Council registered chaperones who all have enhanced DBS clearance.

 

The day will conclude with all the children performing in a short concert, which will begin at 5.00pm. Parents/guardians are invited to attend the concert which will take place at All Saints’ Church and the children will leave with their parents/guardians after the concert which will be at about 5.30pm.

School Choir Recording

This recording of ‘You are my Brother’ was specially recorded for the commissioning service of our new Chaplain, Sarah Burke.

 

As children are still unable to sing with others from different classes, due to the current situation, 26 of our Key Stage 2 pupils were recorded individually at school, and then edited together by Miss Evans. Here is the finished recording:
