Year 3 Recorders!
Recently in recorders with Mr Wakefield, Year 3 have been learning lots of new songs and focusing on various different topics inlcluding; a food topic, a haunted topic, and an 'around the world' topic.
They have perfected many different notes and learned how to play soft and harsh tones along with slow and fast.
Here are what some of the children had to say about their lessons;
Zion- ' I liked the Jon Petit song we learnt as we got to sing and dance along in French!'
Cerys- 'I loved it when we learnt 'Carribean Calypso' as part of the Carribean tour as it had a lot of beats.
Malcom- I have now made my B,C,A and G notes amazing from a lot of practise!
We have had a very successful term!
Some Year 4 students for the past few weeks have been studying Gustav Holst, a famous musical composer, and have also been learning how to play the Trumpet and Clarinet with many different rhythms and songs. One child described these lessons as 'really exciting learning how to play new instruments!'
In Years 3S and 3M, the children have been learning to play and perform in solo and group contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency and control.
They have also been learning to use and understand musical notions.
'I have learnt how to play different notes and also different finger positions' -Emma
'I have learnt how to play a 'B' for the first time!' -Gerome
I have learnt how to play songs with the notes 'B', 'A' and 'G' -Cerys
We have been taught how to play the song 'Silver and Gold' and the 'jogging walk' motion. -George
Year 2 Morning of Music.
Our trip to Rio for the Olympics! What a fantastic and enjoyable morning.
Year 5 have been singing!!! On Thursday 30th March, we had 3 other schools come and visit Henley Green, and take off to Space. The theme of Morning of Music was Space, and travelling through our Solar System. We sang loud, and played lots of instruments. It was enjoyed by all.
In the afternoon, Year 4 joined us as we presented what we had learnt to our parents. Year 4 sang Sea Shanties; traditional songs from the coast of England. Year 5 sang their songs about Space. At the end, because Year 5 learnt the Sea Shanties last year, both year groups joined in with a reprise. Everyone had fun.
We learnt how to sing more complex melodies from memory, with confidence, and to perform as part of a group using a variety of techniques such as pitch and using different dynamics.
