Music at St. John's

Summer Music Concert 2017

What a treat! Mr Cairns and the KS2 musicians delighted the audience with a marvellous summer concert on Thursday. The brave instrumentalists played their flutes, guitars and cornet with style, the Y4 ukeleles and Y5 flautists played amazingly and the KS2 choir sang wonderfully.  The concert ended with a performance of 'The Twist' by Chubby Checker where everyone was welcome to join in. A fantastic end to a fabulous year of music at St John's.

Our Choir attended the 'Last Choir Singing' competition at the Colne Municipal Hall. They all had an Angel in their hands on stage at one point!

Young Voices 2017

WOW!! Young Voices 2017 was awesome! Our children were fantastic and sang their hearts out at this amazing concert. We were joined on stage by incredible beat boxers, street dancers and pop singers who performed to a super high standard. Many thanks need to go to all the adults who helped and supported the children in this fantastic experience. It was an occasion to remember.

Spring Music Concert

 

A fantastic program of music (including Uptown Funk, Don't Stop Believin' and Adiemus) was presented to family and friends this term by our new WOPPS teacher, Mr Cairns. Year 4 children showed us their wonderful improvements on the flute whereas Year 5 pupils excelled in their ukelele skills.  All children sang beautifully with the school choir. Solo performances from Edward Bailey on the cornet and Miya Frost and Hayden Hindle on the guitar completed the concert's success. A huge well done to all children involved and a massive thank you to Mr Cairns for preparing the children so well.

The Lazy Mondays

 

St John's pupils had fabulous fun on Monday this week when the Lazy Mondays pop band from Lancashire Music Service visited. Playing hits from the 50s right up to the present day, the band got everyone's toes tapping and hands clapping! Boys and girls joined in enthusiastically with the singing and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Here's hoping that some budding musicians have been inspired to take up a musical instrument as a result of this wonderful concert!

 

Music at St John's continues to flourish with fabulous concerts and productions featuring wonderful singing and super instrumental playing.  Take a look at music in our school...
WOPPS in Year 5
Thursday afternoons at school are very musical as Mr Cairns arrives from Lancashire Music Service to teach whole class music through the Wider Opportunities Scheme.  Children in Year 5 are enjoying their second year of WOPPS and are now very proficient at playing their flutes.  They are beginning to play a wider range of notes with an improving tone.  Children in Year 5 are also now proficient singers and can sing with clarity and expression.  Keep practicing Year 5, you are becoming super musicians!
WOPPS in Year 4

Mr Cairns also spends an hour with Year 4.  These children are getting to grips with their ukeleles. Strumming the strings and finding chords are tricky to learn at the beginning!  They also enjoy warm up games and sing songs with clarity and expression.  Thanks to all families for supporting Year 4 children when they practice their ukeleles.  They will get better soon!  It is better to practice 10 minutes every other day to learn at a faster pace.
