In Red and Yellow classes this term we will be looking at pulse and rhythm;
The children will be playing a variety of instruments; from drums and shakers to hand bells and tambourines. Each class will be learning a song about toys as well as a collection of other songs to do with Spring.
In Year 1 - Year 4 the focus this term is learning about Pitch. Year 1 will be learning a selection of one and two pitch songs. In Year 2 we will extend this to songs which contain three or more pitches.
In Years 3 and 4 the children will start learning musical intervals; techniques in how to begin composing accompaniments for songs they are learning and to work collaboratively on their own compositions.
Years 5 and 6 will continue to work on learning and perfecting the instruments they have chosen and will be given an opportunity to perform later on in the term.
