Class four have been exploring the sounds they can make using musical instruments. We used the story Little Red Riding Hood to try to create a sound scape to reflect the mood and events in the story. We annotated a story map for our graphic score to help us know when to play our instruments.
We have been learning about tempo in music, which is the speed of the music. We played “speed fiends” and had to Copy the tempo created by one of our friends. We also had to move to the speed of different pieces of music.
Year 4 have been learning all about tempo. They discussed the meaning of fast and slow before comparing 4 pieces of music and grading them by Tempo.
They listened to a metronome and practiced clapping to the beat. Then played a few rounds of follow the leader with their musical instruments.
They also became composing champions when they chose our own tempo and instruments to create mini pieces of music. They had a great time!
Class 8 are thoroughly enjoying their weekly drumming lessons with Mr Bird! Here they are performing altogether.
Year 3 have enjoyed their final drumming session with Mr Bird today. They’ve worked so hard over the last 4 weeks and gave an excellent performance!
Class 4 have been learning to sing the blues this week.
In Literacy we are studying the story of Red Riding Hood and this week have been thinking about the poor wolf who only wanted something to eat!!!!
The children have loved learning to sing the Wolfie Blues and even added their own little wolfie wimpering howls as they sang!
Mr McCormack’s class had a fun afternoon with Mr Bird learning about percussion. I’m not sure if we’ve got the next Dave Grohl yet but they were all very enthusiastic!
Mr Bird came to give Year 6 some delightful drumming lessons this half term! We also practised hard with our Christmas songs.
This week reception took park in a drumming workshop with Mr Bird. They played different instruments and created a beat together. We had lots of fun!
Year 1 have enjoyed learning more about high and low notes in music. We then used the instruments to play high and low notes.
