There are lots of wonderful ways that you can enjoy music at home in these difficult times. Below are some ideas for activities and links to websites which might give you inspiration.
If you have a musical instrument at home and would like to send in a video or audio recording of you playing it then please send to Mrs Roberts. Equally, if you would like to send a recording of you singing we'd love to hear that too. If we have permission from parents, we will upload what you send us on this page if you would like us to share it.

As part of their Home Learning, Kingfishers were tasked with re-writing the lyrics to various popular music tracks. Two of the Kingfishers have re-recorded the track Dance Monkey with their own baking-themed lyrics. I think you'll agree the results are rather impressive!

The Royal Albert Hall stages some of the most amazing musical experiences in the world every week. Obviously, at the moment, the Royal Albert Hall is not open to the public but the musicians who work there have put together a series of videos aimed at children, explaining all about the instruments of the orchestra and also some videos of these instruments being played at their best.
The BBC Ten Pieces project has been running since 2014 and is a genuine treasure trove of resources for teachers and children. As part of the BBC Bitesize Home Learning package they have launched weekly Home Learning sessions which comprise a short film and an activity and they are really good! Have a go and see what you think.
In school, many of our assembly songs are from a company called Out of the Ark. Whilst the children are not in school, Out of the Ark are offering access to many of their songs with online powerpoints and resources. If you feel like a singsong, look no further!
SK Shlomo is a Beatboxer who goes around the country teaching children how to Beatbox in a family friendly way. During the lockdown, he is doing a weekly session every Thursday at 2pm on YouTube which is then uploaded onto his website. Click on the link to go straight to the website and once there click on Menu, Previous Episodes and have a listen! It's a lot of fun and you'll be amazed at the sounds he'll have you making.
BBC Play It is an interactive tool aimed at younger children (although I have a feeling that Key Stage 2 children would enjoy this too!) to help them create, layer and listen to all the sounds that create songs and music. Have some fun playing around on it and see what musical masterpieces you can create!
Oak National Academy is an online school which offers lessons, resources and online assembly. Their #2 assembly features tips, information and a sing-a-long from members of the West End version of The Lion King.
