In our music lessons we are excited about using a resource called Charanga for music tuition. This is a modern, interactive way for KS1 and KS2 to access the curriculum. Throughout their learning children will learn about Pulse, Rhythm, Pitch, Tempo, Dynamics, Timbre, Texture and Structure. Children are encouraged to listen and appraise, to enjoy various musical activities including composition and performing.
Information about Charanga can be found on the internet.
Years 3 and 4 are learning to play simple tunes on the recorders as well as learning to read simple music notation.
We continue to enjoy music clubs like Handbells, Choir, Steel pans and Music tuition.
Music tuition continues this year with Ukulele lessons for Year 5.
It is with great excitement that the school has invested in a set of steal pan drums which the children are exploring from year 2 upwards.
Last year the choir performed at Loughborough Baptist Church and the RNIB.
Hand Bells performed at Loughborough Baptist Church on 10th December.
Year 6 also played their part by entertaining Senior Citizens at their Christmas Sing-a-long at Emmanuel Church.
A busy time for all of us.
