A Christmas Carol

In music this term we created bands and had a music day. We started the day by reminding ourselves about rhythms and patterns within our music- we revised minims, crochets and quavers by using Christmas phrases. We also revised our ukelele chords from Year 4 and taught ourselves how to play ‘Jingle Bells’, ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland’ and ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’.

In the afternoon our bands had to take one of these tunes and made it our own. We had to create an instrumental introduction to lead up to the song with a range of texture, timbre and with dynamics in mind. Finally, we ended the day with a Year 6 concert where we performed in our bands to the rest of the year! Glastonbury, here we come!
