I would like us to spend this week looking back at what we have achieved in our music lessons in year 5
Can you cast your mind back to September when we started with some percussion work. We learnt some Benjamin Britten songs – remember “cuckoo!”? Straight after Christmas we embarked on our violin wider opportunities project which ended with a fantstic performance and a group who decided to continue learning. We then had a go at a musical futures project where we sang a 4 chord progression as a class and then groups experimented with singing fragments of songs over the top. Since then we have worked on sport songs.
Can you think back and decide for yourself where you think you have made progress. As well as sharing your thoughts about our school lessons can you also tell me about some of the musical experiences you have had at home. It may be that you have started listening to some new music, been to a concert, started learning a musicical instrument.
If you are a member of choir or take part in any of our schoolmusic clubs and lessons can you also leave me your comments about that.
Final question – we have a couple of free music lessons before the end of term- what would you like us to do as a class?
I personally would like to introduce you to some modern new “classical” music as it is something I haven’t really included in our lessons so far but I am open to offers!
I look forward to reading your evaluations!
