Hello everyone, Welcome to the Music page!
You'll find out here what we're getting up to in St Stephen's Church of England Primary.
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.
This school year we were delighted to be able to welcome back Pop UK! Children in all year groups were able to learn new songs, enjoying singing them and even recording them to make an album! The school was alive with music and the children really enjoyed this experience. Children were able to take part in afternoon and evening concerts, where they sang and performed their new music. Thank you to all the families and friends that came along to join in with our concerts and enjoying the children's music.
Worship and Singing Practise
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. The Fischy Music leader Stephen Fischbacher came to school to lead a two day workshop teaching the children new songs which resulted in a performance for the parents. In addition to singing, we listen to a wide range of music on entry and exit to our Worship time with God. This may be quiet and reflective or lively and fun-loving. Each week, we practise our songs in singing practise.
You can visit the Fischy Music website and sample some of the songs using the link below:
Fantastic support from the Bolton/Blackburn with Darwen Music Service
We continue our fantastic partnership with the music service, who have been supporting our teachers professional development in Music sessions. Angela Caswell is currently working with our class teachers in delivering our online 'Charanga' music scheme, to ensure the highest quality of Music is being delivered to our children.
Throughout school, our children are learning to sing, play instruments, compose, and appreciate all genres of music from classical to rap.
