Music Lead: Miss Quinn 

Music is an important part of our curriculum and is enjoyed by all our classes; whether this is singing during our worship time, enjoying our music lessons, or being taught by specialist teachers! 

In our classes we have a weekly music lesson, we use Charanga to guide us through our lessons. Each term takes a new focus and often a new genre of music. 


Through Charanga, we learn to 'listen and appraise' songs, understanding genres of music and being able to identify instruments. Each unit we learn a new song, often singing or using instruments to help us.



At St Stephen's, we also enjoying performing our music throughout the year, to a range of audiences. 


Unfortunately over the past 2 academic years, our performances have been affected by the COVID restrictions, we are hoping as we move into a safer time we will be able to begin our live performances again. 


In a normal school year, we enjoy:


- Y3 performing with Bedford High school in their School production

- Individual musicians performing at the Christmas Fayre

- KS2 singers at the school Christmas Fayre

- KS2 singers at Damn House for our community

- KS2 Performing Arts Show 

- KS1 and KS2 singing club at the Spring Fayre

- Brass Concerts by our Year 4 

- ATHOS Music Festival 

- Year 6 School play 


We wonder how many performances we can take part in this year...
