We have been celebrating Sky Arts Access All Arts Week!


Nursery enjoyed joining Patrick from English National Opera

for a Spellcasting warm-up.


Key Stage One pupils drew pictures of their favourite place to be

and then composed a vocal or body percussion sound to represent it.

The rest of the class had to guess where there favourite place was

by listening to the sounds they performed.

Year Five have been studying BBC Ten Pieces as part of their Arts Award Discover.

They chose to perform part of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Horn Concerto no. 4

as  a whole class ensemble.

Year Five performed their own composition at the Prince of Wales Centre in Cannock, as part of the Manchester Camerata Matilda Songwriting Project.

Nursery have connected their vocal animal sounds

to create their own version of the song Old MacDonald had a farm.

Year Two have connected their instrumental animal sounds to perform the song

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.

Year One connected their body percussion sounds to accompany a Stormbreak video.

Pupils in Year Four, Five and Six have been performing songs in rondo style. 

Year Four are singing The Rattlin' Bog, Year Five are singing There was an old woman and Year Six are singing We're all in this together.

Year Three performed their pentatonic Chinese New Year composition

to Reception class.

Year Five really enjoyed the visit by musicians Andy and Sarah from Manchester Camerata

They are looking forwards to performing their Matilda song at the theatre in March.

Listen to a sneak preview below!

Thank you to Anna Davies for your recorder workshop with our Year Four pupils. 

It was great!

Nursery and Reception children braved the elements to celebrate

Chinese New Year - Year of the Rabbit - with a Dragon Parade.

Year Five have arranged the opening bars of Ludwig van Beethoven's Fifth Symphony,

considering the timbre of the instruments they were performing on.


Pupils in EYFS and KS1 have linked their Music learning

to our celebration of Hello Yellow Day.


They played their instruments in the style of

Anger, Joy, Disgust, Sadness and Fear from Inside Out

and described their sounds using musical vocabulary.
