Music

Music is taught on a weekly basis using the Charanga music scheme. The scheme provides the opportunity for the children to develop a range of musical skills; from identifying the pulse and following a rhythm, to the more advanced skills of composing, performing and appreciation of various musical instruments and genres. In addition to weekly lessons, the children are offered private tuition in guitar, piano, and violin as well as access to recorder lessons and the opportunity to join the school choir. Over the academic year the children participate in various musical workshops, specialist ukulele lessons and dance lessons. We provide opportunities for the children to show case their skills to a wider audience, through carol concerts, end of year performances, assemblies and attendance at local events in the community, such as Burnham Carnival.

STREET DANCIN’ PIRATES

We’re the baddest pirates who sailed the seven seas
We’re so bored with treasure, there’s gold up to our knees
We’re all tired of travelling to Mexico and France
All we ever want to do is dance!

Start up the hip hop beats and let us bust our moves
We’re the thumpin’ techno jumpin’ stompin’ street dancin’ pirates!

CHORUS:
We can spin around, turning upside down
Now we’re on our knees, and we do the freeze
We can do a flip, then we do the splits
We’re the thumpin’ techno jumpin’ stompin’
Street dancin’ pirates!

We don’t need our parrots, don’t want to hoist the flag
We don’t use our cutlass, we’re fed up being bad
Throw away the pistols, put on your dancing clothes
Get the crew together, here we go!

Start up the hip hop beats and let us bust our moves
We’re the thumpin’ techno jumpin’ stompin’ street dancin’ pirates!

CHORUS:

We’re the baddest pirates who sailed the seven seas
We’re so bored with treasure, there’s gold up to our knees
We’re all tired of travelling to Mexico and France
We’re the thumpin’ techno jumpin’ stompin’
Number one, champion… street dancin’ pirates!
(shout) OOOH-AAR!!
