Music 

 

Message from Entrust Music Service:

As the music service is not currently visiting schools as normal, we wanted to help spread the positive messages about why music and music education is brilliant and to signpost parents to our schools, to register interest in lessons for 2020/21. 

 Today we have launched the first in a series of ‘isolation orchestra’ videos which will eventually include music service staff, school music leads and pupils, this video starts with some of the music service team and is the start of a weekly feature on our social media sites as well as on YouTube. See link below:

The World has Turned Upside Down - View here

(Coronavirus and lockdown have turned the lives of children and their families upside down.  

Routine, structure and predictability have been thrown out the window and every day brings uncertainty. 

We have partnered with best-selling children’s author Kes Gray and renowned illustrator Chloe Batchelor to create a story that explains lockdown to children. 

This wonderful story highlights the impact of recent changes and uncertainty on autistic children - but the experiences will resonate with all families. )

Autism Outreach Team have produced a booklet suitable for Upper Key Stage Two Pupils ( Years 5 and 6) to help with feelings during this time:
