In autumn 1 2017, the children in year 6 were learning about music from
the Second World War. In addition to listening to music sung
Lynn, the children have been thinking about the purpose and message in
a war time song. To conclude year 6 have composed their own
songs and have begun to use Music ICT software to create a backing
track. There is a competition as the children in 6CT, 6HM and
vying for the top spot in the music chart.
Year 4 have been learning about Tudor Music and have been memorising
all of the historical fact in a song. In autumn 2
2017, year 3 and 4 will have Recorder and Violin lessons with a Teacher
from the Hillingdon Music Service. New Music Ambassadors and
Music Club Monitors have been elected.
The KS2 Choir have been invited to perform with the Hillingdon Brass
Band at a Carol Concert in December and have already begun working
learning songs for the Young Voices Concert at the O2 in February 2018.
The new KS1 Choir Club meets every Friday lunchtime. They are
currently working towards performing at the KS1 Singing Festival in
December! The Recorder Club, Keyboard Club, African Drumming Club and
Music G and T club are available for WEPAs Marvellous Musicians to
explore this year too.
