Music – Summer 1 2021

Reception

This term the children have thoroughly enjoyed our topic Once Upon A Time. The children have been learning about traditional tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood, The 3 Billy Goats Gruff, The Ugly Duckling etc. The children particularly enjoyed The Gingerbread Man where the story was told alongside ‘Zorba the Greek’ music. As the tension in the story heightened, the tempo of the music quickened. This really helped add to the drama of the tale.

The Children also enjoyed watching Miss Helen’s performance of The 3 Little Pigs. Everyone got to join in with building the houses and blowing them down in character as The Big Bad Wolf. The music used really supported the children as they them expressed themselves.

Year 1

In Year 1 the children have been learning to play the song ‘Your Imagination’ from their Charanga lessons. They have used chime bars and talked in detail about the different notes each bar makes. They identified the notes needed to play the song and listened carefully to the rhythm/pulse of the song before they began to play. The Charanga lesson emphasised and showed everyone when it was the correct time to play each note. The children showed excellent concentration as they persevered and mastered the piece. They were very proud to perform the song together as a class at the end of their learning.

Year 2

This term the children have been learning about sequencing. They followed lessons from Oak Academy and focused on following notation and repeating this from memory as they performed as a class group. In subsequent weeks, the children used chime bars and boom whackers and their music lessons linked to their prior sequencing learning. The children were able to refer back to sequences they knew and when they felt confident they composed their own sequences!
