We are delighted to welcome Rock Steady back into school this year. This allows children the opportunity to learn and play an instrument, in addition to their music lessons in school. Each week, they take part in band practice and then perform with their bands at the end of each term. The sessions are led by Mike, a highly skilled music teacher and children really enjoy this opportunity.
The whole school, including parents and governors, really enjoy watching such amazing live music performed by our very own Brookhouse pupils.
We are so proud of them and their achievements to master a variety of musical instruments.
Wider Opportunities in school (provided by our Music Hub)
As part of our wider opportunities here at Brookhouse Primary School, the Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils learn how to play a particular instrument each week within their music lessons. Working alongside our links and contacts with Bolton Music Services, the school provides opportunities for children to apply their musical skills on a variety of musical instruments including recorders, flutes and clarinet. They then showcase what they have learnt at the end of each term in a special assembly.
New to school this year, is the Brookhouse choir. Rehearsals take place on Friday lunchtimes and due to the huge amount of interest it has had to be limited to Year 5 and 6.
Children in the choir have voted on the songs they would like to learn, and in the Autumn term will be learning Lean On Me by Bill Withers and Roar by Katy Perry.
The choir are very keen to perform and look forward to singing in assemblies and to parents. They also hope to get the opportunity to sing with other schools as well as compete with other schools. Watch this space....!
