Music

Music at St Gerard's is vibrant and exciting. Children experience music in the classroom as listeners and performers.

Performing and composing makes music exciting and challenging. Year 5 have the opportunity take part in keyboard lessons all year where they are learning new compositions and performing them to the rest of the school. Year 5 are also lucky enough to be involved in this year's Spring Concert where they will be performing some well-known Disney songs to a huge audience.

Year 6 are currently involved in Gospel singing in which they are learning to collaborate and harmonise together to make unique sounds They will be performing their songs at the end of the academic year at Liverpool Cathedral.

All other years are developing these key skills through Charanga which is a teacher-led music scheme. This innovative software allows children to explore their musical abilities through singing songs together, making their own compositions and playing instruments (pease see link below for more information)

Outside the classroom, children are still immersed in an array of musical activities. In PE and Breakfast Club, children have the opportunity to take part in dance lessons led by our Sports Coach (Miss Simpson). After school, Mrs Ollier leads a Choir Club where children rehearse and perform their favourite songs. Also, in the near future, Guitar Club will be reintroduced  by Mr McCabe.
