Curriculum Music

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 by Vera Lynn, the children have been thinking about the purpose and message in a war time song.  To conclude year 6 have composed their own wartime 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 6FI are 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.

How to hold the Recorder Correctly
Year 3 will be learning to play the Recorder this year!  A Teacher from the Hillingdon Music Service will teach them how to play the Recorder clearly and how to recognise simple notation.  The children will have the exciting opportunity to become a marvellous musician! Here is how to hold a recorder correctly;
  1. Hold the top of the Recorder with your left hand.
  2. Support the lower end of the Recorder with your right hand.
  3. Place the thumb on your left and cover the hole on the back of the Recorder.

Our Visit to Kingsley Court Centre

The Wood End Park Academy Recorder Club were invited to perform at the Kingsley Court centre for the elderly. The children performed Hot Cross Buns, BB Blues and many other songs to an excited audience. Chelsea and Hamna both performed pieces they had composed themselves and all of the children were invited to perform an encore. This has been a very helpful experience as the children are developing their confidence and performance skills.
