Music

Music is a hugely important part of school life at Spilsby Primary.  We offer a large range of opportunities to our children, including:

 

  • Whole school singing every day in assembly (including a special singing assembly led by Mrs Jeffery every Tuesday).
  • Weekly class music lessons taught by specialist music teacher, Mrs Jeffery
  • Choir - every Tuesday after school, which is open to all pupils in Years 3-6, meets to sing a range of songs.  We perform at a range of events throughout the year, including carol concerts in Spilsby and beyond, the Spilsby Schools Music Festival and Young Voices.
  • Instrumental Tuition - We are extremely lucky at Spilsby Primary to offer lessons in Guitar, Drums, Brass and Keyboard.  We have visiting teachers who come into school. Let Mrs Jeffery know if you are interested in taking up a musical instrument.  We are currently recruiting new Guitar pupils for Mr Newby so do get in touch if you are interested in starting guitar lessons.

Spilsby Primary is proud to be recognised for our commitment to high-quality music education!

Mrs Jeffery brought her cello to school today!

As part of the Year 1 and 2 project 'Paws, Claws and Whiskers', we have been looking at 'The Carnival of the Animals' by Saint Saens and 'Peter and the Wolf' by Prokofiev.  We have used these pieces to help us learn about the sections of the orchestra and the instruments in each section.  Mrs Jeffery plays the cello and brought it in to show the children how a string instrument sounds, how it makes its sound and how it feels to play.  We loved having a go!

Year 6 whole class recorder lessons

In the summer term, Year 6 will be having whole class recorder lessons with Mrs Jeffery. We are learning to read notes on the stave and understand how to read rhythms. Today we had our first recorder lesson and we learned how to play the notes A and B and played with backing tracks to 3 different pieces. Well done Year 6!

BBC Ten Pieces III

Still image for this video
Year 5 have been lucky enough to get places to see the BBC Concert Orchestra at the Embassy Theatre in Skegness in February as part of the BBC Ten Pieces III programme. As part of this, we are learning the song 'No Place Like' by Kerry Andrew which is made up of some quite complicated part singing. 5AJ are doing so well with learning it and are loving the challenge.

Another fantastic performance at Young Voices in Sheffield! All the children and adults were definitely 'united in song' and it's wonderful to see the impact of music upon our pupils.

Christmas Carol Service- St James Church

Such a lovely way to finish the Christmas term with a Christmas Carol Service at St James Church who accommodated us all once again and allowed us to invite parents to come and enjoy with us. Well done to everyone who worked tirelessly to make this as brilliant as it was. The children really do enjoy singing together & sound fabulous. 💕😊🎄👏🏻 All classses all sang a song along with two whole school songs.

Today the Slidin' About trombone quartet visited school and did a workshop with Years 5/6, Y3/4 and YR/1/2.  They played some amazing music (including the Superman theme dressed in red capes!) and some of the children had a go at playing trombones.  Brilliant!
