Welcome to Music at All Saints Upton
'Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.'
We love music at All Saints Upton C.E. Primary School! Whether we are singing, dancing or playing an instrument we enjoy taking part and being creative.
We use the 'Charanga' scheme through each year group to introduce our children to a wide range of musical styles and develop their technical skills and musical vocabulary.
Children begin learning how to play the guitar in Year 4. For one term each year, pupils in Year 4, 5 and 6 have weekly guitar lessons with a peripatetic teacher. Each term, we aim to end with a celebration of the children's achievements in the form of a concert for parents and carers.
Outside of the classroom, children are still immersed in an array of musical activities and events.
This year we are looking forward to re-establishing our school choir and being able to sing within the community at local retirement homes and Widnes town Centre.
This year we will be taking part in 'Young Voices' and the 'Halton Music Festival'.
It is not only the 'choir' who get the opportunity to perform. Our annual 'Music Day' is a fun way for each class to learn about music from around the world and perform to the whole school.
