Autumn Week 4
We are excited to be working with Trinity Collage London and Curious Minds as we embark on our Arts Mark journey. This week we have registered to become an Arts Award centre and look forward to more children gaining discover level Arts Awards. More information on Arts Mark and Arts Awards can be found at www.artsaward.org.uk and www.artsmark.org.uk
We have had a busy start to the new academic year with the Y1 children embarking on a Rap Music unit of work, we have listened to songs and identified the instrument we could hear and we are thinking about the differences between rapping and singing.
Year 2 have been looking at primary colours and we have learnt that these are the colours that we cannot mix or make using other colours. The children had the opportunity to draw and colour in their favourite things in the primary colours.
In Year 3 we are looking at R&B music this half term, we will look at different artists and appraise their work. We will be learning to sing and play the glockenspiel alongside the song Let Your Spirit Fly.
Year 4 will continue to learn to play either flutes or clarinets taught by Miss Howarth from Oldham Music Service.
We have had a good start to a Rock music unit of work, looking at Livin’ on a Prayer by Bon Jovi in Year 5. We will be appraising different Rock artists and learning to play instruments alongside the music.
In Year 6 we started an Art unit of work called ‘People in Motion’. We had a go at drawing moving people and then looked at using ovals to sketch parts of the body in proportion.
