St Francis Xavier Music
Our intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing and composing. We believe that all children are capable of becoming confident, expressive performers. We intend to allow the music curriculum to flow through the entirety of the school. We want to ensure that music is closely intertwined with each class topic to build an immersive learning environment.
As part of our music lessons Year 5 are focusing on Blues. We have started to learn how to play various chords on the glockenspiel.
Year 2 learnt to create rhythms and then put these rhythms into an order (or structure) to tell the story of St George and the Dragon.
Nursery enjoyed working together to sing 'Row, Row, Row your Boat' when thinking about word and rhyme.
As part of their 'Myths and Legends' unit in Music, Year 2 have been learning about the layers and texture of music by listening to some pieces of music inspired by the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. They discussed how the different pieces of music made them feel and what instruments they could hear.
