Advent Carol Concert

Advent Concert

Year 4 and 5 represented the school at the local advent concert at the parish church on Sunday.  

They sang 2 songs beautifully, accompanied by Mr Richards on the piano. It was lovely to hear how well they had rehearsed the words, and how their musicality was evident.

I was also very proud of the children’s behaviour throughout the concert as they listened so carefully to the other schools’ performances and were respectful and well mannered throughout.

Thank you to Mrs Richards and Mrs Stacey who had prepared them so well and to Mr Richards for his piano playing.

Harvest Festival

Piano recital

On Thursday we had a pianist come in to play in the afternoon. Her name was Clare. She played six pieces. Three of them were by Chopin, one by Debussy, one by Rimsky-Korsakov and one by Unsuk Chin who is the only one still alive. Clare answered a few questions and at one point she lifted the lid of the piano so we could see how it worked. My favourite piece was ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ by Rimsky-Korsakov. By Rowan (Y6) and Lily (Y5)

A selected group of 12 musicians from Year 5 and 6 visited Rendcomb College on Wednesday for an orchestral extravaganza! They learnt, practiced and performed 3 pieces from the BBC Ten Pieces initiative. They were supported by specialist music teachers and finished the day with a concert for parents. Very well done to them all for performing so well and many thanks to Mrs Richards and Mrs Stacey for accompanying them.

Class 2 treated us to a wonderful assembly on Tuesday all about some pirates. They remembered their lines really well, sang beautifully and acted their parts very convincingly. Well done to them all and thank you to all the adults in Class 2 who helped them perform so well.

'Spring Sing'


 In February, the children in Class 5 were invited to join other Cirencester schools for a 'Spring Sing'. Since then they have worked hard to learn a new set of songs. This week, Class 5 joined children from Deer Park School and Paternoster School for a rehearsal and performance led by Liz Terry, who works with schools throughout Gloucestershire. It was an inspiring afternoon. The children sang beautifully and with confidence in a variety of styles. It was difficult to choose a favourite song as singers and audience enjoyed them all! As well as expanding their repertoire with great new songs, the children also learned some sign language. Well done, Class 5, and thank you to all the adults who supported us.

Music at Stratton


Music is a central part of our school.  Children are encouraged to take up musical instruments, and all pupils from Years 4-6 are taught recorders by Mrs Richards.   She also leads a weekly Singing Assembly for the school and teaches music workshops throughout the year, covering many aspects of the music curriculum. 


All musicians are welcome to be members of our school orchestra.

'Music in Class Assemblies'


Music is very often a key part of class assemblies through singing, playing instruments, composing and responding to music through dance.



Our school orchestra includes all children in Key stage 2 learning instruments at Stratton School. We have violinists, cellists, guitarists, recorder players and a tenor horn player. We welcome all abilities. The more experienced players support those less experienced and we work towards the end of year concert when we celebrate instrumental music at Stratton. Some children are learning other instruments at home and we encourage them to share their progress at school.


This year all children in Years 4 and 5 are learning to play the recorder. This teaches them how to read music and develop performance skills.
