Video: Nursery rhymes

This week the children have learnt lots of new nursery rhymes and practiced ones they already knew. This has been difficult as due to COVID no singing was involved indoors but we were able to perform them outdoors, acted out the stories from the rhymes, ordered the lines to make sense and completed missing words to ensure we all learnt and understood them.

Latin music

This week in Music the children discovered Latin music via Ricky Martin’s “Livin La Vida Loca”. The children loved the energy of the song with everyone dancing along.

‘This music makes me feel happy and want to keep dancing’ Maya
‘I can hear a trumpet and it’s playing quick’ Krista
‘It’s a really fast beat and has a electric guitar’ Liam

The children then moved on to applying their new Latin beats to their Chranga song using the glockenspiels.

Lord of the Dance

Part of our music lesson today the children all listened and appraised Lord of the Dance. The children were asked to think about what instruments they could hear and how the music made them feel.

‘I can hear a violin playing really fast’ Maya
‘I can hear flute, it sounds beautiful’ Helen
‘It made me feel happy because it was fast’ Daisy. G
‘It made me want to move because it’s fun’ Liam
