Year 2 - The Little Sing
Year 3 Cornet.
For Spring 2, Summer 1 and Summer 2; Year 3 will be having a 1 hr session per week on playing the cornet. Here are some photos from their very first session. The children were learning how to hold the instrument and make a sound out of it correctly (it's harder than it looks!). They all did an excellent job and even managed to play the song 'A sailor went to Sea' in their first lesson! Well done Year 3!
Year 3 Music - Ukulele
Year 3 are learning to play a variety of simple tunes on the ukulele by learning basic chords. They have also been developing their knowledge of rhythm by experimenting with body percussion.
Year 4 Cornet
Our Year 4 class put on a concert to demonstrate the skills they have learnt during their whole class instrumental lessons. They have achieved such a lot in just 3 half terms!
Year 5 - We are listeners!
In Year 5, we have been focusing on listening to and appraising music from the past. We started by developing our musical vocabulary and understating the meaning of words such as structure, texture, timbre, pitch and tempo. We then embarked on our Musical Historians project listening carefully to music from the past and responding creatively to this. Opinions really varied across Year 5 as we listened to music by various composers: L’hom Arme, Arrival of the Queen of Sheba and The Sugar Plum Fairy. We responded creatively to the music by completing listening logs and talked about how the music made us feel inside. We then compared the music to music we might listen to today. Have a look at some of our listening logs...
Year 6 Glockenspiels
Year 6 - The Big Sing
On Wednesday 6th November, Year 6 attended 'The Big Sing' at Mount St. Mary's. In the morning, we all prepared for a special liturgy by learning new songs and actions as well as selecting children to learn a new dance and read bidding prayers. After lunch, along with many other children from Catholic primary schools across Leeds, we participated in the special liturgy. We had so much fun!
