Together with Music - it starts with a song! March 2021

Together with Music is a virtual music campaign that will build connections between care homes, residents, older people and their local schools. St Jude's have recently signed up to this campaign and we hope to build new connections by sharing our favourite songs online with our local communities. There will be activities to complete in order for children to achieve a certificate of merit.

Sing out! performed by St Jude's Primary School November 2020

St Jude's Primary School, Fareham, Hampshire, performing 'Sing out!'. This song was written during lockdown by Mrs Crane (music teacher at St Jude's). All cla...

St Jude's Primary School, Fareham, Hampshire perform with The Band of HM Royal Marines.

St Jude's Primary School, Fareham perform in collaboration with The Band of HM Royal Marines Collingwood. This was recorded virtually in 'classroom bubbles' ...

Within St Jude's School our children have many strong military links and we are extremely proud and lucky to be the first primary school to join in a project collaborating with The Band of HM Royal Marines which has enabled the HM forces to reach out to schools during this time.


Our classes used the music 'Timepiece no 1' (especially written for them) to create their own musical responses using a range of classroom instruments including; Boomwhackers, ukuleles, piano, body percussion and movement.  Our music was put together with the musicians from The Band of HM Royal Marines Collingwood to create our very own unique performance. 


Here are a few quotes from the children after watching the video today:


"I think this was an amazing experience"  

"The drums were COOL!"

"It sounded really good" 

"It's nice to see my friends from different classes all playing together"

"I loved the fact that everyone worked together to make this good piece"

"The cymbals made a great finish"

"I liked the LOUD trumpets"

"I just really liked it all"

"It was special to be able to play with the Royal Marines Band"


This was a fantastic opportunity for everyone involved and we really hope you enjoy watching the final results.
