Hello year 5!

Hello year 5 and welcome back to school!

Did you spend much of your holidays watching the Olympics? It was very inspiring listening to the athletes. I particularly loved the interview Mo Farrah did where he said his achievement was mainly due to “hard graft”. It got me thinking that it is the same with music. EVERYONE who is willing to try hard and make an effort can be really good at music. If you would like to start learning an instrument and you are prepared to put in some effort let me know! Ive just started to learn the piano and though I find it tricky I’ve realised the more I practise the easier it gets!

One of the side effects of working hard at music means thats that your brain gets even better at maths and literacy. Incredible but true!

This year in music we have another exciting project that I am positive you are going to be really excited about! I will put up the details as soon as I can. I have picked year 5 to be the blogmasters! You were so fantastic at blogging “Ring around the World” it makes perfect sense to choose your year group to give a lead. I will be looking for some music ambassadors so watch out for the adverts by the music room.

This year we will be singing, exploring rhythm and pulse, songwriting and finding out about Mozart.What you think about your music lessons matters to me. I would love to know which bits you enjoy/don’t enjoy and why! What music do you listen to? Do you play an instrument at home? How are the lessons going? Do you find it tough to practise? What would be your PERFECT music lesson? Is there anything you are keen to learn about in class?

This year I am determined to be a better listener and find out more about my students so can you help me out by replying to my questions either by leaving me a message on the blog or a note in the music room.

I really enjoyed our lessons last year – I was SO PROUD of your “Ring around the World” project. I know that you will achieve even more in year 5!

Best wishes,
Mrs Schneider

PS – this video made me laugh. it shows so many different styles of music in just ONE song!
