Performing Arts 2017 - 2018

Mr Palmer

We have a huge amount of Performing Arts taking place at Plantation Primary School.

Choir

Our choir has children from Years 3 to 6. We meet every week and have a wide repertoire, including both serious and more light hearted songs. We perform regularly in school and around our local area. The children perform at our local day care centre and in the Liverpool Royal Hospital over the Christmas period. During our performance at the hospital, we raised over £200 for the hospital charity, which was fantastic news

The results are in from the Knowsley Singing Challenge. Unfortunately no win this year, but very positive comments.

 

"What fabulously confident singing – great diction and lots of smiley faces. It was thoroughly enjoyable to watch and the actions really gave great emphasis to the song’s lyrics, portraying its message perfectly. Well done!"

Instrumental Tuition

The children are given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument  when they get to Year Four. We currently have children learning the flute and clarinet.

All the children in Year Four are given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument for free. They are taught by two experienced musicians and will learn how to the play the instrument during the course of the year. They will also develop other skills in music such as singing and as well as appraising different styles of music.

 

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO) Christmas Concert

Some of our Year Five children  took part in a concert with the world famous RLPO this Christmas. They sang  a range of Christmas songs and carols as part of a massed choir. This was a fantastic opportunity and the children loved every minute of it. We were all very proud of them.

Arts Education in a MultiCultural Environment Residential

Every year, our year five children are given the opportunity to attend this three day course. During the course of the trip, they will turn their hand to skills as diverse as storytelling, African drumming, Indian Dance and Visual Art,. All sessions are led by professional performers in those disiplines. It takes place at the Conway centre and is a fantastic opportunity to work with other children to try new skills. 

 

RockKidz

This year we welcomed Rock Kidz into Year's 2 and 3. The children spent 4 days learning songs with professional rock artists and this culminated in a live performance and a CD recording. The children had a brilliant time.
