Music at St John's


Here at St John's we love music.

We love to sing, we love to listen and we love to play. 


We have music lessons once a week with Mr G (or with Mrs Young in Dragons) where we get to listen, compose, perform, improvise and find out about the history of music. 


We also sing as a whole school with Ms Domoney - this term we are mostly singing songs about keeping healthy and the Easter story. We are looking forward to performing at our Easter service. 


Year 3&4 are working hard on their Cluster Sing event and can't wait to perform with other schools.  


You'll also hear singing coming from our classrooms - whether it's times tables, nouns or the continents of the world, we love to sing to support our learning!


We also get the chance to learn the ukelele and the recorder at St John's so you may even hear whole classes playing together in beautiful harmony. 






Musician Of The Month - March




Elvis was born in Mississipi, America in 1935. When he was 11 he got a guitar for his birthday. He made his first album and starred in his first film when he was only 21 years old. Just a year later he was drafted into the U.S. Army and did not release a song for several years. He made a huge comeback in 1960 with the song "It's Now or Never" and  he continued to have hits throughout the '60s and 70s. He died at his home, Graceland, in Memphis in 1977. To this day more than half a million people go to Memphis to visit Graceland every year.
