Music is integral to life at Barford St. Peter's Primary School and teachers incorporate song and rhythm across the curriculum in all year groups as an engaging and enjoyable approach to learning.
Music is taught as a discrete subject, in weekly lessons, through the Charanga interactive scheme. Charanga is a world- leading music teaching and learning platform.
Weekly 'praise through music' assemblies are held each Thursday where the children sing a variety of traditional hymns and more modern songs that reflect current celebrations and festivals. This is a popular time where children join in with enthusiasm.
Across the school year, we mark special times of celebration by visiting our local church and joining with the community to sing during our services.
Peripatetic music teachers visit regularly; offering a choice of instrumental lessons including keyboard and ukulele to individuals from KS1 and up.
Warwickshire Music also offer their services in KS2 where they visit one year group, weekly, in order to teach the children the basics of playing a musical instrument. Currently Year 4 are benefitting from french horn lessons!
Barford St Peter's has an active and enthusiastic choir club.
We meet each Friday, during lunch break, to rehearse with an extremely knowledgeable and experienced volunteer choir teacher. Barford St Peter's choir takes part in large scale concerts, run by external agencies as well as our own school services.
