Welcome back for the start of a new year! We have lots of exciting music related activities planned and are looking forward to sharing them on the blog this year.
In music lessons this half term children in the EYFS will take part in Caterpillar Music sessions, children in Year 2 will be learning the djembe and Year 3 children will be continuing to develop their ukulele skills. In Year 4, children will use the Just Play resources from Musical Futures as part of a scheme to develop their band skills and Year 6 will take part in a scheme of work we have designed around the Trinity College London session skills. Children in both Year 5 classes will be learning to play a new song, with Peregrine class learning Stitches, by Shawn Mendes, and Swallow class learning Can’t Stop the Feeling, by Justin Timberlake.
This half term the new Norbridge Rocks band will be starting to learn two new songs, Human by Rag’n’Bone Man and Just Can’t Get Enough by Depeche Mode. A group of eight children from Years 4 and 5 will be the first to start our newly designed Norbridge Music Award and the Young Voices choir will begin practising the songs and dances for their concert at the Motorpoint Arena in January.
Keep in touch with what we are learning across the school on our blog and twitter account @NorbridgeMusic.
