Today p1/2 tried something a bit different for Music. We linked 3 curricular subjects together to create the start of our very own compositions!
In our teams we had to clap out the syllables in each of our fruity words. Then, we each had a turn of being the conductor. They had to point to each of the pieces of fruit and the other members of the band would clap the syllables out. Each conductor would try to create a pattern using the fruit/syllables/claps.
At the end of the lesson we performed in our groups in front of the class. We had great fun!
Last Friday some of the elite members of Running Club went a mammoth run that took in the Royal Infirmary, the rope park and Craigmillar Castle before school had even begun. We had an amazing time and had an impromptu dance after coming across a Spanish lady playing some music at the top of the hill. Check it out!
Over the course of four weeks P7A have attended Liberton H.S. as part of their transition project in preparation for high school. The children worked in the music department with Mr McCorquodale to create their own audiobooks based on the story of the hungry crocodile. This was a great experience and has given them a taste of what life at high school is like. A huge thank you to Mr McCorquodale and all of the adults who came to help each week. Why not have a listen to some of our work?
P1A have had an excellent week! We’ve loved our mini topic of Rock Band. The children have dressed up, written stories, played games, made pictures and sang along with some fantastic rock songs from Lego Batman to Queen. Rookie Rockstars was great fun and the children loved taking it back into the classroom and into other activities. Each child was a musician for the week and each table became a band! Our own tour manager/star of the week Yasmin also had a role helping the class stay organised and get to each ‘gig’ on time. What a week! Miss Read is happy to say we’re all Rock Stars in the making – check out our ‘rock’ faces!
Thank You to everyone who came along to our nursery Burns supper yesterday. We had a fantastic turn out, and it was lovely to see everyone getting involved and joining in the Scottish celebrations.
We have have been very interested in finding out about Robert Burns, and have looked at some of his poems and songs. We were so inspired by all of his hard work that we all became authors and created our own book! Well done everyone!
