Hedgehog Music Performance

This morning, Hedgehog class performed their ‘lean on me’ song to CNS high as part of the outreach project.

The Year 12 students then joined in with their instruments for the verses. It was great to see everyone making music together!

We look forward to seeing how our partnership can develop next academic year.

Boom Whacker Workshop

Hedgehog class enjoyed a Boom Whacker workshop today courtesy of CNS high school.

Miss Peek will be delivering these sessions across the school during the next academic year.

They were able to play different rhythms and chords and even accompany the song ‘Lean on me.’

Y5 #WeWill Sing

#WeWill Sing was a unique choral opportunity where Y5 worked with other primaries and Ormiston Academy through music, performance, and youth social action. The project involved working together to produce a community choral event, whilst raising money for local charities, which took place in December.

We are so proud of all the children who took part. As part of their dedication to the project they all received a Gold Award and a Murray Award for doing over 25hours of youth social action.

Music Assembly

Today, KS2 had a special visitor to show them brass instruments.

They were able to find out what makes a brass instrument different to others, how the tubing and size of instrument affects the sound and range as well as ask lots of questions!

What a brilliant opportunity!

Performance Club

The upper KS2 performance club treated staff and parents to a live performance after school today.

They showcased their hard work from this half term, presenting the song ‘a little circus’.

Their singing and choreography was amazing! We are very proud of their efforts.

Thank you to Miss Graham for using her talents to inspire our mini actors/actresses!

Y2 Computing

This term in Computing the children have been experimenting with digital music in Chrome Music Lab. This week they have used the Kandinsky app to make sounds by drawing different shapes and patterns. After testing out the sounds they could make, the children composed music that reminded them of space.

Year 2 Mice – Music

This term Mice class have been having Music lessons with Sistema and have been learning all about pulse, beat, melody and rhythm. They have learnt how to play different percussion instruments and have composed a Christmas song including writing the lyrics themselves!

The other two Year 2 classes are looking forward to their own music lessons in the coming terms.

Christmas Songs and Snowmen

This week year 1 have performed Christmas song for their grown ups, used a paint program to draw snowmen and learnt the story of Lost and Found. The children are learning the story and planning it out ready to write it independently next week.

Year 5 #WeWill Sing

A year of practicing finally paid of in such a spectacular way!

Y5 performed at the #WeWill Sing concert, held at Orminston Victory Academy. They performed three songs and not only did then have to learn the words they also performed the songs in BSL ensuring inclusivity to all.

We are so proud of Y5 for their dedication to this project and thank #WeWill Sing for the opportunity to preform and raise money for such worthy causes.
