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 30 minute, 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. 


Last school year, our performances were: 


- Y3 performing with Bedford High school in the Christmas Panto

- 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 singers at the Spring Fayre

- Y5 taking part in Let's Sing!

- x3 Brass Concerts by our Year 4 

- ATHOS Music Festival 

- Year 6 play 'School Daze'


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

Our 2018/19 Performances

“How is it that music can, without words, evoke our laughter, our fears, our highest aspirations?” ― Jane Swan
