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!

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!

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.

Instrumental Lessons- Guitar, Violin, Clarinet

posted 8 Sep 2020, 12:17 by Louise Sutton

Just a plea to those of you who play a musical instrument in school....Your parents have received an email with a letter asking if you would like to continue your lessons again this year. I am sorry your lessons were cut short last year and that we didn't get to do all our concerts but I am hoping we can make up for it as we move through the school year!

Please ask your grown up to check their email and send the reply slip back or just email me: arts@sandringham.school if you would like to continue with your instrumental lessons by Friday. (I really hope you do!)

If you don't send me an email I will assume you don't want to carry on with your lessons.

If you decide you don't want to, that makes me sad but it is perfectly ok, but you will need to bring your violin and clarinet back to school please.

Welcome Back

We have loved seeing some of you around school and we know some of you have been asking when we will be teaching you your performing arts again. We don't know at the moment, but we really hope it will be soon. Don't worry though we will be back in your classrooms having lots of fun again once we know it's safer to do so. We also know it's going to take a few weeks for you to get settled in your new classes, get used to the new routines and being back at school after such a long time! 

Medals and trophies for our Sandringham's Got Talent competition which took place in the summer, during lockdown have now made their way to your classrooms, so you will be receiving these on Monday!

A welcome for New Y1's and Children New to School

Wow! What a lovely afternoon we've had listening to and watching lots of fabulous entries to our Sandringham's Got Virtual Talent! Firstly we would like to say a HUGE thankyou and a MASSIVE well done to everyone that sent us in their entries. They were all FABULOUS and made it a very difficult job judging. We split the entries into three groups: KS1, LKS2 and UKS2 and oh my goodness Year 3 and 4 you absolutely rock!!! You blew our socks off and it is clear that this is where the greatest talent lies at Sandringham and there is still some years to develop the amazing skills you already have the roots of, especially those with hidden talents that we didn't even know about.

So the moment you have all been waiting for:

KS1 winner: Sophia 
Runners up (in no particular order) Olivia, Taylor, Jassimrit

LKS2 winner:  Jonatan 
Runners up (in no particular order): Olivia, Imogen, Evie, Annabelle

UKS2 Winner: Callum
Runners Up (in no particular order): Cameron, Oliver, Jack

Your certificates will be emailed to you and trophy for the winners and medals for the runners up will be received, when we look forward to congratulating you properly in September. 

We were also really impressed with some other entries, so look out for a postcard in the post!

We would like to say a huge well done and thank you to everyone that entered and look forward to making the contest bigger and better next year!

Have a fabulous summer

Lots of Love 

Mrs Sutton and Miss Galloway.

I've been smiling from ear to ear all day today, as more and more entries have come through for our Sandringham's Got Talent. I've even had entries from some children who sit really quiet in our performing arts lessons!! It's been lovely to see the confidence...maybe we should do more things virtually, as its been so lovely to find some hidden talents, that I didn't know many of you had! I am already excited about being able to teach you again, and see how much you've grown, and developed and really looking forward to helping you ooze in confidence, once we can start our performing arts lessons again.

 

So if you haven't already it's not too late to send your entry in - I've had singing, dancing, instrumental playing and even some music skills related 'work' - keep sending them in, you have until 12pm on Wednesday, then look out on the blog for the winners, who will get certificates and a prize!
