William Patten Primary School


Both Year 4 classes performed at St. Matthias church on the last day of term, with Betty Layward and Grasmere. The children had been working on a six week project with James Moriarty who leads the Young Dissenters choir. All the children sang ‘Freedom Train’, ‘I’m on my way’ and ‘This land is your land’, as well as the song that each school had composed themselves. The whole performance was incredibly moving and the sound of the children’s voices with the acoustics in the church was beautiful.
A huge thank you to our fabulous children for their amazing singing and to James for sharing his love of music and singing with us. We are hoping to work with James in the future – fingers crossed!
