Barnsley Music Education Hub website now has new features which we really hope will support schools. As well as a new Online Learning section that was developed last term, we have also been working hard to reduce the amount of printed paper resources that we use, therefore we have included the following documents online:

·         Pupil Practice Diary

·         Pupil Handbook (Lots of information about how lessons work)

·         New Starter Form (Pink Form)

Here is The link to these documents:

Music and Me

The Year 6 Leopards are enjoying the latest unit on Charanga. They are learning about inspirational female artists and about being pioneers. They have been working in groups to compose lyrics for a rap. This week, they used plastic pollution as their theme.

Here are our brass newbies from the Year 3 Badgers. There are 21 children in school receiving small group or individual brass tuition this term. Thank you, Mr. Dodd!

It’s only our 2nd week with our new Charanga song. We’re listening very carefully to the pitch as there are some tricky intervals! Thanks to this fabulous resource, we’ve been ‘musical’ throughout lockdown! 

Sounding Fabulous!

This Year 5 musician has impressed his teacher during his remote lessons in lockdown. We’re sure that you’ll agree – ‘real life’ lessons are sounding absolutely fantastic! Here’s one of his exam pieces.
