School Performances

Update April 2018:

This Easter, children in KS2 performed a new musical, 'The Tale of Three Trees', in St. Chad's Church. Year 4 narrated and acted out the play, which tells the story of three trees, each one hoping for greatness but disappointed by how things turn out - until all three trees achieve something very special in the end. The children sang beautifully and were accompanied by Year 4 on hand chimes.

Update December 2017:

Each year the KS1 Nativity goes from strength to strength and 2017 was no exception. A particularly high standard of acting, dancing, singing and narrating ensured our show - 'Lights, Camel, Action!'- was a real opportunity for pupils to shine.

Our KS2 summer musical 2017 was 'Wind in the Willows'. Year 6 did a fantastic job in the lead roles and as narrators - we had many brilliant soloists this year - whilst Year 5 were menacing stoats and Year 4 provided beautiful hand-chime accompaniment to some of the songs. All in all it was a fantastic performance, and, as usual, a great team effort.

Each year, every child in Year 3 and Year 5 learns brass instrument technique for a term and a half. Pupils then put on a special performance of their music for parents to showcase their skills and some children progress to regular weekly lessons and even music grade exams for a variety of instruments including trumpet, clarinet, flute and piano.

Children in Year 4 learn to play the hand chimes, which they revisit in subsequent years for school performances. So far in 2017-18, KS2 pupils have provided hand chime accompaniments for our Harvest Festival, Christingle at Coventry Cathedral and our Christmas Carol Service at  St. Chad's.
