Guitar Lessons

Well done to everyone on their guitar lesson guitar. Year 4 you were awesome getting things changed from school to home so quickly!

Mr Merritt was really impressed with you all and it was a great success. If you play guitar and you haven't signed up to join the online lessons then please drop me an email and we will get this organised for you. arts@sandringham.school

Those who accessed your lesson in school - if you end up self isolating then please don't worry we can organise things really quickly to ensure you can still access the lessons, as the Y4's demonstrated this week! Just please email me and let me know you are isolating so I can organise things for you. 

Ideally please could you have your guitar tuned prior to your lesson, it just saves lots of time in your lesson, especially as Mr Merritt can't physically do it for you. I used this website yesterday and it worked a treat! 

https://tuner-online.com/

If you scroll down it tells you the peg to turn, and what note/ number it should be tuned to. If you click on turn on tuner your microphone will listen to playing the note and the peg will go green when its correct :) It will get easier the more you do it. 

Please drop me an email if you're stuck with anything.

Instrumental Lessons

We have had a fantastic start to our remote violin lessons today and I am so excited to start clarinets and recorders, along with guitars on Tuesday next week. I have sent all grown-ups an email explaining about this. Once you reply to say you would like to continue your child's instrumental lesson then I will send you the appropriate consent form. Consent is needed because these lessons will take place via Microsoft Teams. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you haven't received your email with the details on these online lessons, so that I can get your child set up.

We have shared the Opera in school but due to copyright reasons we are not able to share the link outside the organisation however if you would like to view it, with your child then please visit:

Whistle Stop Opera: Cinderella – A Christmas gift from Opera North…

posted 13 Dec 2020, 02:38 by Louise Sutton

This song resource is being sent out in advance of us sending out our free Whistle Stop Opera: Cinderella performance film to schools by the beginning of next week, so children have time to learn the short song in preparation for watching and joining in with the performance!

 

This is being sent out as a Christmas gift from Opera North, as we realise it hasn’t been possible for schools to undertake Christmas trips out to the theatre during this festive season. We hope this will bring the magic of opera to pupils and teachers and will be the next best thing to bringing a live Christmas production.

 

Please find links to the resources below:

Hello to my lovely musicians. Everyone who has an instrumental lesson in school are all now set up online to be able to record their instrumental lesson each week. When you go for your violin, clarinet, guitar, or recorder lesson please ask your teacher for a sticker and put it in your passport - or if you forget your reading diary. Your grown-ups can then log your hours on the children university website:  

https://login.childrensuniversity.co.uk/Account/Login

On your sticker is the stamp - which is the colour and four digit code. 

Any problems please email me: arts@sandringham.school


Shout Out

posted 15 Oct 2020, 12:03 by Louise Sutton

I would like to give a huge shoutout to Chameleon, Flying Fish and Phoenix classes!

We decided that although I can’t be in your classroom, I could still teach you music through the videos I have created for each year group ‘music with Mrs Sutton.’

These three classes have completed their first lesson this week and have all done an awesome job! I have had videos sent back showing me how they’ve gotten on and the pleasure of marking books to see how they can apply what they’ve learnt. All three classes have done an awesome job because it’s not easy when I’m not there to explain or answer questions but you were just fabulous!

I have been putting some activities in seesaw too and I know some of you have already started these, so keep an eye out in your activity journals! 

Thankyou for making me smile and giving me a high to end on this week! 

Shout Out

A shout out to Marco and Elizabeth who have done some additional home learning and being very creative with music and sounds from World War 2. They have spurred me on to want to create a quiz so watch this space! 

New Instrumental Lessons

posted 6 Oct 2020, 12:19 by Louise Sutton

All new recorder, clarinet and violin places have now been taken, which is great news and the families of the children concerned have been contacted. You should have received an email from myself with either a letter in regards to clarinet lessons or a sign up link from the music service for violin lessons. If you have signed your child up and haven't received an email then please don't hesitate to contact me. Recorder players have been sent a text message asking them to remember their recorder on Friday.

I am really excited that despite the current circumstances that performing arts is still a priority at Sandringham and am really excited to hear the lessons develop, as we prepare for our virtual Christmas Concert!

Music is in the Air!

posted 2 Oct 2020, 07:22 by Louise Sutton

It was so lovely to hear music floating through our corridors once again as we welcomed back our guitar and violin teachers and we are looking forward to hearing our clarinettist's and recorders next week.  We have already started discussing plans for a virtual concert, which will even include all our musicians performing together as an orchestra whilst still staying in their bubbles!

New Instrumental Lessons

I am pleased to tell you that there will be places in the clarinet and recorder lessons, which will be starting from October, and hopefully in the New Year for guitar and violin. On Monday your grown-ups should receive an email with a letter attached telling you the information about how to sign up for these lessons. 

If you don't already play an instrument in school and would like to be considered for a place then please ask your grown-up to email me: arts@sandringham.school telling me what instrument you would like to be considered for by Monday 28th September. 

Mrs Sutton.
