Hello everyone, Welcome to the Music page!
You'll find out here what we're getting up to in St Stephen's.
At St Stephen's, we use a music scheme throughout school called Charanga.
This teaches the whole curriculum progressing through all the levels of attainment.
We use some fantastic songs as part of our worship in school.
Along with producers of various collections that we use, we subscribe to an online source called Fischy.com. The songs have religious and moral content which the children love to sing.
The children learn signs along with the songs to help them remember and enjoy the words.
You can visit the website and sample some of the songs using the link below:
Our EYFS will be performing their Nativity for parents in December:
Monday December 10th at 2.00pm and Tuesday December 11th at 9.15am
Nursery Rhyme Nativity is a special Christmas musical for young children, retelling the Biblical story of the first Christmas to the tunes of favourite nursery rhymes.
The children have been learning nursery rhymes and so will already be familiar with the tunes.
It's amazing how quickly they learn the words when it's fun.
KS1 children (Rowan, Birch, Maple and Holly Classes) will also be performing their annual nativity in December:
Monday December 17th at 2.00pm and Tuesday December 18th at 9.15am
Donkey For Sale is a delightful retelling of the Biblical nativity as experienced by a donkey called Alfie!
The children will enjoy learning and singing the songs and performing for parents.
Everyone is welcome to come and see our talented children so keep an eye out for a letter home in book bags. Details will be available soon.
Christmas songs for Sahara Fold
Every year, a large group of our KS1 children visit Sahara Fold, our local home for the elderly, to sing the songs from their Christmas Nativity.
It is a lovely, uplifting experience for both the residents, and for our children.
The children sing their songs, accompanied by backing tracks on a CD player, and then they are rewarded with a drink and some chocolate and fruit. The residents love their annual visit.
The journey back to school is wonderful as the children feel so happy from the experience that they sing all the way. Well done St Stephens pupils!
