Music Making Around The Shire

Hello everybody!
I have been thrilled to hear some of the music that has been played at home over the last few weeks. It has been very heart warming to hear recordings of Class 2 students playing recorder and making up tunes and to receive some wonderful compositions by Class 6 students, excellently notated and played . It really makes my day! I also heard a great story of one student working out how to play Happy Birthday on the recorder for his mum’s birthday. The joys of music in the home! I look forward to hearing more of your music next week.

Wishing you all many wonderful songs and fun singing together. Here is a song for our whole community to sing, to bring us together at this time. It would be lovely to know we are all singing it in our homes. We will all sing it when we all get back again. Click the image above to hear the song and download the words and the chords here for those who play an instrument. Happy singing!

Much love

Year 8 Art

Students are creating stop frame animations. Here is a picture of a set for animation. Time creating is so important as it allows students to use their imagination and create with their heart and hands utilising colour and form. They are also encouraged to draw portraits and figure drawings of themselves and their families.
