CHRISTMAS CONCERT

After school, on Friday 16th December, parents, carers and staff enjoyed festive performances from our school choir, recorder group and music ensemble.  This included many beautiful Christmas songs presented by our choir and confident musical performances from our flute and clarinet players and trumpet duo.  Dylan and Kelsey were really impressive singing solo accompanied by our musicians.

 

"The children's performances were fabulous and they were led well by Mrs. Cunliffe.  It was a wonderful way to end the week; feeling festive now and I enjoyed the mince pie and hot chocolate too."

Mrs Kennedy - Grandparent.      

INSTRUMENTAL PLAY DAY - The Foundry Church

Some of our year 6 instrumental group took part in an exciting afternoon and evening at the Foundry Church, Widnes with lots of other children of all ages.  They worked in small groups to learn four compositions ready for an evening performance on the same day. 

Below are some of their comments:

"Yesterday, when I went to the Foundry, I was so excited because I had never been before.  I was a little nervous because I had to sit by myself since I am the only flute player from St. John Fisher.  When we started practising I was really struggling, but after the practise session and help from the adults that were there, I got the hang of it.  Me, Alex, Kelsey, Molly and Izzy all had a great time!  I kind of made a new friend - although I don't remember his name - but he was really nice!  I definitely want to do this again and would recommend it to everyone else!"   KATIE

"I was proud to represent our school in a band of 107 children.  It was fun to meet new friends and talk to new people who love music as much as I do.  I had lots of fun playing new music and reading the notes." MOLLY

"Yesterday, 29th November, including me, five girls went to the Foundry and represented St. John Fisher by performing with our instruments.  It was an amazing event because we were able to show our talents and perform the best we could!  Me and Molly - my best frined - met a new friend called, Emily, she is a lovely girl who helped us with our notes."  IZZY 

"Yesterday, I went to the foundry and had so much FUN!  I made a new friend called Jess, who goes to St. Chads in Runcorn.  We played 4 pieces and my favourite was ROCK IT!  We got to perform with lots of different students from different Primary Schools.  I had a great time!"  ALEX

 

 

SPRING CONCERT - Sts. Peter and Paul College

The Choir took part in Sts Peter and Paul's Spring Concert. They enjoyed singing lots of Disney songs and were thrilled to be part of an exciting event working with children from other local Primary Schools and the older children who are pupils at Sts. Peter and Paul.
