Before we get stuck into seasonal music, here's some imaginative music to enjoy from last term! Several pupils enjoyed creating their own descriptive music after being inspired by the books of June Armstrong. You can watch recordings by Ben, Jeffrey, Jessica, Katie and Rebecca on this page, Imaginative Music.
By the way, June has watched the recordings and enjoyed them very much!
Pupils will be continuing to improve their reading skills with the popular capture the Go-Go or Stikeez game..... or as George calls it, Torture the Stikeez! It involves identifying treble or bass notes and capturing your opponents game pieces. The Stikeez tend to get stuck in a variety of places!
One more thing, we're travelling back to Halloween with a version of my duet Shivers Down Your Spine, featuring a mash-up of performances by Chloe, Ben, Jessica and George. All of them learnt a version of the duet, chose their own dynamics and spooky ending. Here's the result, with a truly terrifying end!
