Assessment Week: Not everyone could be video'd in Hedgehogs class but they were all so impressive playing together.

Danah has also learnt the melody
Hedgehogs class had a good go at accompanying the video
End of unit assessment: Hedgehogs class. Proud to SHOUT about how much we have remembered about dynamics!
Week 4: combining percussion, singing and dynamics. Tricky, but we're getting there
Week 3: Nikoleta wrote this music on the stave all by herself! Amazing! Make sure G is on a line, not a space but apart from that you are spot on!
Week 2: playing the Volcano Song on Glockenspiels (no dynamics yet, we're still learning!)
Frere Jacques backing track
Spring 1: Volcanoes (dynamics!)
Week 1: We explored Italian words for loud and quiet - forte and piano (say it for-tay and pee-ah-no)
Mrs Williams wrote lyrics to Frere Jacques:
Walking softly, Walking softly, Up the side, Up the side, Hear a huge eruption, Hear a huge eruption, Run and hide, Run and hide.
Can you sing it.
What sort of dynamics do you think we are going to use for our accompanying percussion composition?
Week 5 - Learning our music with stave notation - learning to add rhythm
Week 4 creating melody for our chorus - Bats Class
Week 3: We have titles for our class songs.
Hedgehogs: Better World
This week we were thinking of lyrics to make a catchy chorus. Next week we will make some melodies so we can sing them.
Look at this video inspired by the first week of Big Dreams. Mrs Williams heard the pitch and wrote it for everyone to play
Big Dreams Composition topic by Laura Loft
End of unit performance to Year R - Bats class played, rapped and sang for Dolphins class. They were a very good audience

This term's learning is based on Treasure Island.https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/music-ks2-treasure-island-1skull-and-crossbones/z7xsnrd
In week 1 we learnt the song with the tutorial. We thought about some of the tricky lyrics like bandolier and buccaneer.
In week 2 we learnt how to play Yo Ho Ho and Up she rises on the glockenspiel. We learnt a new note F sharp. We haven't played sharps before. Everyone did really well.
