Song of the Week:

Easter to May Half-Term: Listening, Composing, Making and Finding Out
Try to complete 1 piece from EACH section, below: Listening, Composing, Making, Finding Out.
Have a look at this 'Nando's Peri-Ometer' music work. I'd like every pupil to try to complete one activity per week over the next 4 weeks, please. Choose 1 listening activity, 1 composing activity, 1 making activity and 1 finding-out activity.
'Spicier' work is harder. Less 'spicy' work is less difficult.
All levels of difficulty are available to all year groups, except that Year 3 pupils are limited in the COMPOSING challenge (Year 3 should not go any harder than 'Medium' in the composing work, as they have not learned beyond this).
The challenge is - the spicier you go, the more rewards you get! Look in the left hand column to see how many DOJO points are available to you!! Some of the harder work is also more fun and more interesting, so don't automatically go for easy. Challenge yourself: how hot can you go?
Email your work to me, (email@example.com) or ensure you keep your work in a safe place for when we go back to school,
so you can receive DOJOs for your hard work!
20th March to Easter: Body Percussion, Singing Games,Composing and More!
These Body Percussion workshops on You Tube are really fun! Click on one below, to try one:
If this is a bit hard, or you've got a little brother or sister who wants to join in, try one of these, instead:
Playing Body Percussion games is such of good way of taking part in music, and actually learning a lot about beat (pulse / heart-beat) and rhythm (the words on your fingertips). If you'd like to play along with more Body Percussion videos, here’s Ollie’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/OllieTunmer
Often, in class, we play Singing Games to help us with our musicianship. Click on this link for daily singing game activities, which you can do on your own. Just like in class, these are a lot of fun! https://www.nycos.co.uk/daily-activities/
Why not have a go at writing some music on this fun (free!) website. Click here, and start creating:
Here's another idea: Write a musical acrostic poem of your name. Here's mine:
When you've done it, you can send it in. Why not have a go at doing someone else's name, too - maybe your class teacher?
Your Wonderful Work!!
Here are 2 pieces of work from Scarlett, from the 'Finding Out' section of the Nando's work, set after Easter.
She's also done a very detailed PowerPoint about musical instruments, and has received a record number of dojos!
Can you beat her dojo record? Complete some of the work and send it in.
Here are some fabulous Musical Acrostic poems, from Amelia B:
Excellent work, Amelia! Mrs Palit will be very pleased to see her name in a musical poem! (2 dojos have been added for you)
We've also had some amazing PowerPoints sent in - they're too big to go on this page, but have received a LOT of Dojos.
A special mention goes to Ruby, in Yr6, who has done 2 incredible PowerPoint presentations, including lots of impressive facts.
Well done, Ruby! Here is a screen shot of just SOME of her slides:
