Music

We have a long tradition of excellence in Music at St Monica’s! We are fortunate to have a specialist Music teacher called Ms Phillips who works Monday – Thursday. As well as teaching music for at least one hour every week to every class in the school, she also runs the school choir, supports the strings group and coordinates all the peripatetic teachers who come to the school to teach instrumental lessons.

30% of the children in the school have instrumental music lessons with a peripatetic teacher. Teachers are provided by Enfield Music Service. If you would like your child to learn an instrument at school, look out for the details in the weekly newsletter. We recommend that children wait until they reach Year 2 before starting lessons. Children are currently learning keyboard, piano, recorder, violin, cello, guitar, flute, clarinet and a few others!

A range of opportunities are provided for children to sing and perform at school. We have annual Christmas concerts as well as special assemblies and music concerts. The children are delighted to play for an audience and parents enjoy seeing how much their children have learnt!

SINGING PLAYGROUNDS HAS STARTED!! – February 2017

Singing Playgrounds has come to St Monica’s. Thirty children from KS2 attended training at Keys Meadow Primary on 27th February. They then helped another 24 children to learn to be Song leaders here in school. Finally, we took the games out into the playgrounds, and hope to run sessions once a week. Our favourite games are “Jump Jim Joe”, “Bungalow”, “John Kanakanaka”, “Here Comes Sally” and “Tanczymy Labada”.
