International Music Day - Wednesday 22nd June 2022
To celebrate International Music Day, each class gave a fantastic musical performance. Every child rehearsed, learnt lyrics, actions and we even had children playing a variety of musical instruments. It was a briliant assembly!
Reception performed the popular song 'The Sun Has Got His Hat On' with the accompanying BSL signs to go with it. They discussed how music makes them feel and how important sign language is to ensure music is accessible to everyone.
Year 1 really enjoyed learning the song, ‘Your Imagination’ as part of our weekly music lessons and loved being able to perform it to the rest of the school. For our performance, we split into two groups and sang different parts of the song.
In Year 2 we have spent a lot of time talking about the importance of friendship and how we can be a good friend to others. This song has some really lovely lyrics that the children thoroughly enjoyed learning and discussing.
Year three worked on a piece of music about the Celtic queen, Boudicca. The children sang the song, which had an increasing tempo, and played instruments with varying beat patterns - creating and instrumental which represented the chariots racing to battle.
Year 4 sang a song filled with facts about Ancient Egypt as that is our current history topic.
Year 5 wrote their own poems, raps and songs about the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The children wanted to share their original pieces with the school to show off their lyric writing skills.
Year Six have been singing songs from the time of World War 2 whilst learning about this time in British history. These songs all have a marching rhythm so that the troops could march along whilst trying keeping their spirits up.
Chethams School of Music - Music in Residence
Year 5 were lucky enough to have Sarah from Chethams School of Music deliver two brilliant workshops which supported our music curriculum through close interaction with classical instruments, active listening and composing music. They had a great time and all of them discovered they could create and enjoy music.
Year 4 - Brass Music Lessons
Year 4 are lucky enough to have a teacher from Lancashire Music Services to teach us as a whole class once a week on a Friday afternoon.
They are loving this and hopefully will deliver a performance at the end of the year.
The children have their own unique password to access the Lancashire Music Services website to practice their instrument at home - they are amazing!
The school band meets once a week and is taught by Mrs Falkner. New members are always welcome.
