Music

Here at Stone St Mary's we pride ourselves on being a singing school.  We believe that the inclusion of music and singing in lessons improves a child's well being.  The children have the opportunity to access a broad curriculum in music, including singing as a group, learning to sing in a chosen style and key, playing a variety of musical instruments and listening to and appraising different styles and genres of music.  In year 4, the children have the chance to learn to play the ukulele alongside an outside professional teacher.  In year 5 the children take part in a choral project where they get the chance to perform at different venues on a stage.   The children all enjoy accessing music across the curriculum and find it helps them to  broaden their understanding of other subjects. 

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....

 

Term 1:

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.

 

Term 2:

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.

 

Term 3:

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.

Rock Steady

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! :-)
