Music is taught by Mrs J Bowsher across Years 1 - 6. She also teaches individual Piano lessons for Key Stage 2 children.
If you would like to contact me about the work set here or send in any homework I would love to hear from you. My email is JBowsher@sg.thedcet.com
A big well done to all the choir who came and sang in Yeovil Together on Sunday. You looked and sounded fantastic! And we won the mayor's trophy again!! Good job! :)
Just stumbled across this...isn't it fun?
Happy New Year! :)
Here is a prayer for us as we start this new term...
Here are two Christmas songs for you to listen to. One is in Malaylam and one in Polish. We will be learning parts of them as a whole school. Enjoy! :)
Have a look at this.... :)
Here is a fun little song to take us into half term. I am sure you will be singing along by the end :)
Have a look at this musical timeline to start getting an idea about the history of music. Why don't you try choosing a piece of music to listen to from one of the composers in each time period and compare them. How do the styles, instruments and sounds change over time?
Remember to look on your class pages for songs we are working on in class or extra music to listen to :)
Welcome back to a new school year! Hope you all had a lovely summer break.
It is with great sadness that we have lost our wonderful Queen and I want to pay tribute to her many faithful years of service to our country. We welcome King Charles III. Here is the new National Anthem and a beautiful snap shot of her incredible life put to music. I vow to thee my country was written by Gustav Holst (It is part of Jupiter from the Planet Suite.)
So summer is upon us and it won't be long till the end of term.
A massive well done to all those children who performed in the rec last Sunday. Listening back I can safely say you did the school proud! :) Hope you all enjoyed the event.
This term Year 1 have been learning songs about different types of transport and Year 2 have been learning how to play Little Green Frog on chime bars.
Year 3 have been the first in the school to learn our brand new ocarinas and we look forward to their rendition of Twinkle Twinkle in their class assembly.
Year 4 have been enjoying learning a bit more ukulele as they missed out during Covid in the Autumn term.
Year 5 have been learning how to play Brahms lullaby on glockenspiels and sing Squelch! (a firm favourite!)
Year 6 have been composing in groups and working on a class song (Raise my voice) which they will be performing in the leavers service.
Rock Academy have also reassembled this term to work on a couple of pieces for an assembly next week.
I would also like to mention my Year 6 piano pupils who will be leaving this term. Julia, Abiona, Trisha and Nathan. Well done for your commitment to learning and practising an instrument and keep on playing if you can! :)
Hope you all have a lovely summer holiday when we get there. God bless and stay safe :)

So here are two Easter songs for you to listen to and sing along. At the cross and Happy Day!
Hope you all have a lovely time over Easter as you remember this wonderful story! Look forward to seeing you all again in the Summer term :)
Found this fun song that encourages us to be thankful. Have a listen and see if you can add the things in your life you are grateful for :)
Hey...Just found this new and wonderful version of the blessing sung by hundreds of people all over the world in their own languages. It really is beautiful. Have a listen!
Happy New Year to you all! Hope you are well and ready to go! It will be good to be back making music together :)
I will be teaching every other week in KS2 so remember to look here on your class pages for extra links of songs to be practising or activities to be doing in between.
I am so sorry not to be finishing the term with you all (except Year 2!) I shall miss our Christmas lessons. Always such a lovely time of year for songs and carols. Have a listen to these ones to get you in the festive mood. O come all ye faithful with a modern little twist at the end and Mary did you know by the Pentatonix. The harmonies in this are awesome! Enjoy! :)
If I don't see you again in school this term I wish you and your families all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Can't believe we are half way through the Autumn Term already! It has been good to get back into singing and making music together. Every half term I shall be updating the class pages with some extra songs and activities that support our class learning so don't forget to have a look.
Remember you need to scroll down to the bottom of this page to find your year group!
Here is a beautiful song by Frank Sinatra with some gorgeous autumnal leaves to inspire you!
Welcome to the summer term! :) Looking forward to a music filled few weeks, singing, playing, listening and learning together.'
Here is a great clip 'O Happy Day' sung by a gospel choir. They are so enjoying singing together aren't they?
Here's a bit of fun for half term!
This clip has the most unusual instruments of the world...from drainpipes to carrots!
Maybe you can find some things around the house to make some music. Let me know how you get on.
Happy New Year to you all! :)
Have a look at the link below which shows a band of 1400 musicians from 35 different countries coming together in beautiful harmony in this Song of Hope. It is so inspiring to watch and I hope you enjoy it. See how many different instruments you can recognise.
Remember to look on your individual class pages for other music activities.

As it's nearly Christmas I thought you would all enjoy these songs :
Born is the King (It's Christmas) by Hillsong Kids and O come Emmanuel by for King and Country.
Remember what Christmas is all about, not just presents but being with family and celebrating the birth of Jesus!
Remember to keep practising your class song for the Carol Service.
Hope you all have a wonderful time and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year:)
Remember to click on your year groups for music to do. I have put a few follow up activities from last half term's music lessons for you. Hope you all have a lovely half term and enjoy going for some fun Autumn walks!
This is one of my favourite autumn songs. Enjoy the velvety voice of Nat King Cole and the beautiful colours of this clip.
Here is a beautiful song that I want to share with you all. It's called The Blessing and the words are a promise taken from the bible. This version sung by children is particularly lovely and this is my prayer to you all over this difficult time. I hope it speaks to you heart. Make sure you share it with your adults. God bless you all.
