Year 6 have been enjoying a variety of activities this week including Bamboo Tamboo drumming with Mrs Murray. The children learnt new rhythms and patterns using the Bamboo Tamboos to create beautiful music.
Year 6 have been learning to play the ukulele with Mrs Murray this term. They have used many different techniques and they are creating some wonderful, tuneful music.
Year 6 began their Ukulele lessons with Mrs Murray today. These sessions will not only teach the basics of playing a stringed instrument, but will also cover musical notation and inter-dependence when playing as part of an ensemble.
Year 4 pupils in 4B, 4L and 4D held a performance to showcase their drumming this afternoon. We are very proud of the courage and interdependence that was displayed. It was lovely to see so many parents supporting their efforts. The parents’ performance was great too! We’re looking forward to 4U and 4P’s turn tomorrow!
African drumming has returned to QPA! Our Year 4 pupils now have weekly sessions with a music specialist in order to develop their musical skills.
This morning’s singing assembly had the added bonus of becoming a staff dance class to highlight how friends work together! The children sang fantastically throughout , as they always do every Tuesday.
Today’s WOW day went really well. The children had many opportunities. They composed water themed musical pieces, created watercolour artwork, conducted a scientific test related to water purity and designed their own boats.
