During spring term, Monday 8th- Friday 12th January 2018, key stage 2 children are taking part in a fantastic opportunity provided by the organisation 'Rock Kidz'.

This schools programme gives Primary School children in the North-West the opportunity to work with established musicians. Pupils are given the opportunity to learn and sing four original songs, record a CD and perform a concert.

The programme covers key points across the PSHE/Citizenship curriculum and aims to develop children’s spiritual, moral, social & cultural (SMSC) understanding through this. Naturally other areas of learning such as music education, RE & literacy also benefit from the programme.

The pupils come together each day to work collaboratively and learn important life lessons along the way. Rock Kidz aim to inspire pupils by creating an environment that is both fun and educational.

Throughout the week the children will cover the following the topics: anti-bullying, self-esteem/self-worth, perseveance, goals and dreams, friendship, inclusion, valuing diversity and respecting one another.

The Concert
At the end of the week the children have become fully fledged positive Rockstars and are ready to perform their debut concert! Tickets are sold to friends and family who are invited to this momentous occasion.  The children can come dressed as Rockstars which is always enjoyable and gives them a sense of ownership for the work they have done. It is a fantastic way to finish the week and a lot of fun for pupils, staff, friends and family.

 

Our year 3/4 concert will take place in the school hall on Thursday 11th January 2018.  Year 5/6 will perform on Friday 12th January 2018.  Children should arrive no later than 5.30pm in order to prepare for the concert to begin at 6pm!

 

A letter has been provided for parents to order tickets for their child's performance as well as pre-order the CD that the children have recorded during the week. Other merchandise such as hats, t-shirts and wristbands is also made available to buy. To view the full range of items take a look at Rock Kidz online shop.
