"I like learning how to play the glockenspiel, because I like to learn new things. I also loved singing and rapping in our music lessons; it was really fun to do something a little bit different. I would like to learn how to play the saxophone and I am lucky that I will have the chance to do this as there are many music opportunities to choose from at St. Francis de Sales!" - Lizzie, Class 1
In Year 3, pupils receive weekly hour-long Music lessons every term from Mrs Bowyer, our Music teacher from Resonate Music Hub. During these lessons, pupils focus on a range of genres including R'n'B and Reggae. Pupils develop an appreciation and understanding of the indicators of these genres through listening. In addition, pupils learn and perform a variety of songs, both through using their voices and using the glockenspiel and compose music using these instruments.
Pupils also learn, practise and perform a range of Christmas carols for our annual Christmas Carols Service in our school church. In addition, they also learn songs to be performed at the Advent Services in the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.
