We are very excited to share with you our wonderful members of the Key Stage One Choir! Each week we gather together for an hour of singing, often with added dance moves and lots of laughter! So far, the choir has learnt six songs in only three sessions - wow! We look forward to sharing a performance with you all soon.
This week our Year 6 pupils have become song writers! Together, they chose a current song that they like, analysed it, and then began to write their own covers.
First, we explored how different song writers have mixed rap with country music, and the different themes they have sung about in their lyrics. The children's own covers are based on modern day London and what it means to them. We have had many interesting whole class discussions surrounding what is "popular", our local areas, interesting landmarks and our thoughts on current politics and environmental issues. We look forward to taking these first initial ideas and structuring them into a song.
Wow! What a fantastic first week back in our music department. This week, Year 2 have been exploring rhythms, using different parts of their bodies to create lots of interesting sounds. They also started the term by learning a completely new song in just ten minutes! Super stars!
