As you walk through the corridors at Little Stoke Primary School it would be unusual not to hear music being made in some form or another. Our children absolutely love music and there is a wealth of different musical opportunities which children across the school participate in.
Our seventy strong red-tie choir performs concerts which are truly memorable and magical. The Christmas show is our pièce de résistance and is always a sell out! The programme is varied, challenging and highly entertaining with songs which are funny, reflective and moving in equal measure. We also have twenty children who participated in the South Gloucestershire Schools’ concert at the Colston Hall in June.
One hundred and twenty children are currently working hard on our summer musical production – Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat! It promises to be a spectacular event for parents and friends to enjoy. We have been amazed at how quickly the children are learning the lyrics, the tunes and the drama and dance; their enthusiasm and motivation is always awe-inspiring. As an added bonus, staff are enjoying it just as much as the children!
Next year, we have a full and varied music curriculum planned to engage and excite children as well as introducing them to some new musical experiences linked to different cultures. These are provided by the Music Hub, conveniently located in our school!
