St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School - Wetherby
Music is at the heart of our school at St Josephs. We use music throughout the school day in activities such as collective worship, RE, maths, PE and so much more! Music during assemblies brings us all together as a school to worship and celebrate achievements.
Many children take part in extra curricular music lessons at St Josephs, with many external teachers coming in to teach. Lessons include singing, piano, flute and African drumming!
School is also very fortunate to have Mr Jennings come into school on a Tuesday to deliver music lessons for each class from FS2 to Year 6. The pupils love having music lessons and learning from such a talented, enthusiastic teacher. Please see below for comments from some children regarding their lessons with Mr Jennings. The children are also very fortunate to have Mr Jennings running an after school club on Tuesday with Mr Jennings to create a choir. This club runs Tuesdays, from 3:15-4:15.
Young Voices 2018
Young Voices rehearsals take place every Thursday afternoon (3.15pm – 4.15pm) in the hall with either Miss Waite (Y5 Class Teacher) or Miss Clilverd (Y4 Class Teacher).
Rehearsals for Young Voices 2018 are now in full swing! Children in years 4, 5 and 6, and Miss Waite and Miss Clilverd, are extremely excited – it really is coming together now! We have learnt most of the songs, and have even learnt some of the dance routines to match!
To ensure we really are fantastic at the concert, it would be great if all children could be practising at home and learning the lyrics! Here is a link to all of the songs (with lyrics):

Music Lessons with Mr Jennings
On Tuesdays, we are very fortunate to have the brilliant Mr Jennings to come in and work with all classes from FS2- Year 6 and do music with them. The children thoroughly enjoy their lessons with Mr Jennings and gain a great deal of knowledge from these. Mr Jennings carefully plans each year groups music lessons and they are inclusive and engaging for all. Please find below some of the children’s positive responses to a questionnaire regarding music in school:
