What a wonderful buzz of excitement and enthusiasm there was around the school as we sang, danced and made music together during our whole school Music Enrichment Week. Key Stages 1 and 2 pupils worked together; learning ceilidh dances, singing or making junk orchestra instruments together. Every class developed listening skills in music appreciation activities, learned about a particular genre of music through time or place, learnt about music notation – tempo, dynamics, texture, pitch, timbre and structure – as well as composing and making their own music.
Sincere thanks must go to Downside College in Bath who sent staff and pupils to play for us during the week. The playground was filled with dancing as musicians arrived playing bagpipes and drums! Thanks also to Saint Gregory’s Catholic College who sent A level musicians to play a range of musical instruments, as well as a band and folk group who taught us a song and even some moves! Thanks to Mr. Gill (Miss Gill’s dad) who came in and played ‘Carnival of the Animals’ for us on the piano and to those parents and friends who volunteered to come in and play their instruments and talk about why they enjoy playing.
It has been wonderful to hear some children say that they now want to start singing or learning an instrument!
