Preps

In Term 3 Preps will be learning simple rhythms using crotchets, quavers and rests through call and response, reading charts and basic composition. They will follow cues to play and sing on the beat and explore leading small groups to play together. Classes will learn to sing, play and act out songs, with a focus on building performance skills to present musical pieces as part of the school Arts Fest 2021.

Grades 1-4

Grades 1-4 will be continuing to traverse the globe musically each week, as we take a glance at a variety of music styles from different countries of origin, in our ‘Cultural Music of the Week’ segment. Students and families are encouraged to share something about the traditional music from their own cultural backgrounds – please feel free to email me if you have something musical you would like to share. I would love to hear from you!

Students will learn to sing, play and act out songs, with a focus on building performance skills, to present musical pieces as part of the school Arts Fest 2021. Classes will be involved in brainstorming ways to perform their acts, including staging, instrumentation, choreography, costuming, and other aspects of performance.

Classes will also continue to explore and experiment with rhythm and simple musical notation through games and activities in the classroom.
