Statement of Intent:
Nativity Play- The children all took part in Prickly Hay. There were songs, dancing and acting galore. The children all joined in and loved presenting their play to their friends and family.
We have been learning some songs with actions. We have then been trying to follow them and add in our own. We are getting really good. We are now focusing on some Autumn songs, ready for the upcoming festival.
We have been using instruments to show our emotions. This has been a big focus of ours in our PSCHE sessions and we have found music is a great way to express our feelings and help us when we are calming down.
30.01.20- The children in Class 3 has the opportunity to watch the fantastic performance of Aladdin by a theatre company that came into school. The children thoroughly enjoyed it!
16.02.20- Children worked in small groups to create their own rhymes using body percussion. The children had lots of fun and they enjoyed performing their work to the rest of the class.
12.12.19- In Class 3, we have been using graphic scores, melodies and rhythm to create winter compositions. The children worked in small groups to create and perform their pieces of music using a variety of musical instruments.
26.09.19- We have had lots of fun identifying and listening to different types of instruments. We have also worked in teams to participate in an instrument quiz! During the rest of half term we are going to continue to use the sounds of different instruments to express our feelings and emotions.
Moon Hares Project-Class 4 have taken part in a fantastic musical extravaganza this week! Following a workshop at Wolsingham Comprehensive School and two workshops in school, our Class 4 children performed at The Empire Theatre in Consett on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th January 2020.
This amazing opportunity saw our children perform with an adult choir and orchestra. Olivia, Xavier and Annie performed on stage whilst the rest of the class sang the songs they had rehearsed. The event was brilliant and the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Autumn Term- During a series of music lessons this half term, the children have looked in depth at musical notes and what they mean. The children explored body percussion in groups, and they experimented with different sounds using their bodies. They had lots of fun exploring different sequences and beats, and performed with confidence.
Music through the 20th Century- In Music Class 5 are learning about different styles of music throughout the 20th century. We have explored all different types of music ranging from heavy metal and folk music to Hip Hop and Blues.
The children have then voted which are their top three types of music which we will learn about in more detail and build into our PE lessons on Dance.
Music: Across the school
Our Brass players celebrate Christmas- On Friday 13th December 2019, Miss Casewell and the children who are learning to play brass instruments in our school, visited every classroom to play a selection of carols. The children have been practising their songs for the last few weeks and gave an excellent performance!
Durham Brass Festival comes to Stanhope Barrington-
