Term 1 Overview
In Term 1 Prep will be learning about keeping the beat and comparing sounds in music such as high and low pitch, loud and soft dynamics, and fast and slow tempos. Students will explore a range of body percussion and percussion instruments, as well as sing songs and learn to associate visual symbols with sounds.
Years 1-4 Themes
Year 1-4 will be traversing 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 background.
Please feel free to email me if you have something musical you would like to share, I would love to hear from you!
Years 1 and 2
Years 1 and 2 will be focussing on rhythm and beat, where students will follow, create and echo rhythmic patterns. They will also play a variety of percussive instruments to collaboratively build and perform songs as a class.
Years 3 and 4
Years 3 and 4 will be learning and designing complex rhythms to form percussive beats for songs. They will experiment with ways of notating their own rhythms and use a variety of percussive instruments to play different rhythms.
