Singing and Glee clubs
Singing at Whitefield
We love to sing at Whitefield! Our singing assemblies cover a rich spectrum of musical traditions which tap into all of the children's musical tastes. From traditional hymns to modern classics with good helping of Disney and of course rock music! We use our versitile voices to raise the roof of our assembly hall...sometimes we think we could be heard as far a field as Manchester.
Singing clubs at Whitefield have been in place forever! We have always encouraged children to sing in various forms from traditional performance choirs to rock chiors and glee choirs including 'Festive Glee Choir'.
Our Festive Glee Choir toured Penwortham last year, visiting local supermarkets, churches and retirement homes to bring Christmas joy to the local area. They are looking forward to this again this year...watch this space!
Rock choir and Glee club joined forces to perform at The Guild Hall WRIST celebration and really rocked out through song and dance.

Recording our very own Whitefield Christmas CD
We are thrilled that this year we will be recording a CD of Christmas songs which will be available to for you to buy. Each year group will sing a chosen song, our choirs will sing, our guitar players will play and sing and even our staff will be recording their dulcet tones! There is an exciting opportunity for 2 soloist or small groups to be recorded too. Auditions for these will take place soon. We will be recording on November 25th.
Our choir this year conisits of 41 Key Stage 2 children from years 3 to 6 (Choir is open for children to join at any point in the year). If anyone still wants to take part see Mrs. Smith and she will happily give you a permission letter. Choir meet after school on Thursdays until 4:30pm.
This year we are entering the 'Last Choir Standing' competition which has a prize of £1000 to spend on music equipment. Wish us luck!
We will also be attending a singing event at Priory High School on 15th October which members' families will be invited to attend.
Watch out for our 'Festive Tour of Penwortham!'
We will end the year singing in style at The Guild Hall WRIST celebration evening.
New for 2014/15. An opportunity for our younger children in Foundation and KS1 to join in with some extra curricular singing. Mini choir will take place on Wednesday lunchtimes with Mrs. Smith and Miss Ashcroft...and Mrs. Foster when she can join us. We are sooo excited to be able to offer this club to our youngest voices and can't wait to get going on some fun songs. Any children from Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 are welcome to join us.
