What we say about Music at Coxhoe Primary School...
Guitar - Year 5
This year all of the children in year 5 have the opportunity to learn guitar. They have begun learning how to hold the guitar properly and are learning how to play songs.
Lola - I really enjoy guitar because I think our teacher is kind and patient. He also comes up with quite good songs. So far we have learnt all of the strings and we are starting to learn the song Old McDonald. I really enjoy it.
Wow! What a fantastic experience we have had performing at the Sage!
We were chosen to represent all of Durham at the NE Hub Gala. We sang and signed 'Bringing Us Together', played the recorder to 'Hands, Feet and Heart' and finished by singing 'This Is Me'. We thoroughly enjoyed showcasing our talents in front of such a large audience.
The fun did not end there because we made the most out of our visit to Gateshead! We enjoyed some time playing cooperation games, a packed tea, crossed the Millennium Bridge and even an ice cream by the river!
Durham Cathedral Outreach Project
Class 11 were very lucky and were chosen to participate in the Durham Cathedral Outreach Project. They worked with a member of the Choristers to learn a wide range of songs. They then had the amazing opportunity to go to Durham Cathedral to perform alongside other County Durham schools to the public and members of their family. They had an amazing time and put on an amazing performance!
We were extremely lucky to have a member of Durham Music Service come in to work with us and teach us how to African Drum. We all had a go at drumming different rhythms on different types of drums.
High School Musical
What an amazing performance! Over 50 Key Stage 2 children attended after school rehearsals to get ready for a show stopping performance of High School Musical Junior! We were lucky enough to act, sing and dance on Whitworth Park's Sensational stage to over 400 people!
