Music Action Plan
Composer of the term
Every term we have a composer of the term. We look at the composer's life, what contributions they have made to music and we look at the genre of music that they play.
These are our composers of the term so far....
Scott Joplin - known as the king of ragtime. He composed the famous piece of music titled 'The Entertainer'. Ragtime then led the way for jazz music to become popular.
Paul McCartney - best known for being part of the Beatles. We have looked at the song 'Despite Repeated Warnings', which was a song written about climate change. We have also looked at the Beatles and why they were influential and how they changed the face of popular music.
This term we have chosen to look at Beethoven, a classical composer. He has written many sonatas and symphonies. We have enjoyed listening to his music and have loved learning about how he has overcome his difficulties with becoming deaf, to carry on composing music.
Please look back at this page to see what other composers of the term we will choose.
We have been very lucky to have had a company called rock steady in to work with some of our children. They are developing their musicianship and learning how to work as a group to form a band. They are thoroughly enjoying it and are enjoying trying out lots of instruments. Take a look at some of our photos...
Flute and clarinet lessons
At Stone St Mary's we are able to offer children the chance to learn how to play the clarinet and flute. Miss Jarvis comes in to teach the children who would like to learn to pay these instruments.
If you are interested, then please speak to Mrs Milne for details.
Year 2 climate change week
Year 2 have learnt about how they can recycle and reuse materials. They have created musical instruments from bits of materials that they would have thrown away. We all think they are marvellous!! Well done year 2! :-)
