Volume and pitch

In year 2, we have been listening to music by different composers and learning different words we can use to describe the music. In this lesson, we were drawing a picture of what the music made us think of and then explaining the reasons for what we had drawn by using the vocabulary volume and pitch.

Wow guitar!

Learning about rhythm

Year two have been learning all about rhythm.  They have clapped rhythms and learnt to depict a rhythm by using musical notes and sounds.  Here are some pictures of the work they have completed.  They have created their own, responded to a given rhythm, created the rhythm for ba ba black sheep and then listened to a rhyme and written the correct rhythm. 

Carols at Christmas


Once again, the choir performed for two nursing homes over the Christmas period. They sang beautiful and many performed solo parts to the songs.  They made a lot of residents very happy.

carols at Willowbank Nursing Home

Willowbank Nursing Home invited us to perform some Christmas songs for their residents.The children really enjoyed it and were even given some juice and sweets to say thank you from the staff and residents.

Carol Service at St Peter's Church

We were kindly invited to perform at St Peter's Church on Wednesday 20th December as part of their annual carol service.  We took along our ocarinas and choir to perform a variety of Christmas songs.  The children did fantastic and were supported by many parents and staff which was lovely to see.  

Christmas Music Concert


Children in the choir, ocarinas and recorders, performed for parents in our music concert on  Friday 8th December.  All children performed brilliantly, and I think I am correct in saying that all parents were very impressed with both commitment and talent of our musicians.

On Thursday the 18th May selected children from the choir sang a special performance for the residents of Willowbank Nursing Home. Both residents and staff loved the concert and even joined in with some of the songs from well known musicals. Well done to all who came.

Music with Mrs Tomlinson


Children in classes 1 and 2 have been enjoying weekly music lessons with Mrs Tomlinson who is our specialist music teacher. The children have enjoyed learning some new songs. They have also been playing percussion instruments and learning how to change the sound each instrument makes. They have been making them play loudly, quietly, fast and slow.
