***In Autumn 2, Crossacres will be auditioning children in Years 4, 5 and 6 for a new choir, led by the talented Miss Werakso! Do you have the Crossacres X Factor?***
“Music is a language. Every culture makes music which speaks to us in different ways; it creates strong feelings, builds memories and ignites passion. The children of Crossacres will appreciate the language of music by learning about and listening to the music of great composers, music linked to world events and festivals and songs whose words inspire, communicate and teach. Children will experience playing an instrument and experimenting with the sounds they make and the joy of learning to play as a group, to listen to rhythm and read musical notation and to evaluate compositions. Children will enjoy singing as a collective group, as a community which sings to celebrate and help us enjoy and remember our days at school.” Mrs. Christie
