14.07.23- slowing the tempo
We have enjoyed learning the song, Alice the Camel, we then learnt the keys to play along on the glockenspiel too. We slowed the tempo of the song so we could keep up with the 3 keys that we needed to play along with the song.
19.5.23- Finding the pulse
We have been listening to a few different pieces of music and have been thinking about staying with the pulse. We thought about how the pulse of the song is what makes us tap our foot or bob our heads and then used the claves to tap to the pulse of the song.
17.3.23- Introducing glockenspiels
We have introduced the glockenspiels and been learning the keys D and F#. We then played the glockenspiel to the song 'Twinkle twinkle'.
10/3/23- Finding a steady beat
Today we have used some of the larger musical instruments to find the steady beat to the song. We first thought about moving to the steady beat by clapping our hands or knees and then we used the instruments.
24.2.23- Combining the Pulse
We were introduced to a new song- Days of the Week. We started off by learning the lyrics to the song which included the English and Spanish words for the days of the week. We then tried to find a steady beat by clapping to the music. While singing we thought about some of the notes being high and some being low as well as noticing that some of the rhythm patterns were short and long. We sang the song and then added untuned instruments and stuck to the beat.
10.2.23- Exploring instruments
We have used the song heads, shoulders, knees and toes to play a range of instruments to. We played the instruments with the beat of the background music.
We started the morning off with some music. We warmed up our bodies moving to the rhythm, then we stretched our faces and finally we sang high and low to warm up our voices. We then learnt a new song and sang it altogether.
