#WeWill Sing – Y5

The children have been busy over the last 6 months learning the songs ‘One moment, one people’ and ‘When I Grow Up’. Today they got the chance to perform with other schools, from across the county, at Ormiston Victory Academy. They were also taught the BSL actions to go along with the songs. We can’t wait to invite you all to the final performance – watch this space for a date to be announced.

Year 3 Music

Today in Year 3 we performed the song we had been learning (let your spirit fly) and looked at composing skills. We recapped quavers, crotchets and minims before attempting to write them.

Black History Month Curriculum Day

Today in school we have had a curriculum day in honour of Norfolk Black History Month. Across the school, children have been learning about influential Black people; Chadwick Boseman, Kadeena Cox, Ashley Banjo, Oti Mabuse, Mo Farah and John Boyega. They have looked into their achievements and contributions and why they have inspired people across the world with their work and their amazing approaches to life.

We were also treated to sessions of African dancing and drumming with the PanAfro Band. It was a joy to see everyone moving and enjoying themselves and experiencing this wonderful style of music and dance.

Throughout our school year, we are committed to celebrating diversity across our curriculum and in all of our learning and so this is just an opportunity to extend the already wonderfully diverse curriculum we have here at Queens Hill.

Harvest Assembly

We had an amazing harvest assembly this morning, where the children shared harvest-inspired songs, poems and artworks with the rest of the school. A big thank you to Miss Peek & Mr James for their music skills!

Year 3 Music

We had fun in music today recapping different musical notes and rhythms. We had time to improvise with instruments from the music trolley and got to perform in front of the class!

60’s Disco

In Year 1 we have begun our new topic of old and new toys. We are focusing on what toys and life were like in the 1960’s. We had a disco to help us get a feel of the 60s. We had a great time dancing and listening to The Beatles on Mrs Carpenter’s record player. She even put on a groovy outfit too!
