Music – Autumn Term 2019

This term children took part in the ‘Get Singing’ event which was part of the national BBC Music Day. In Year 1 and 2 children used advice from a professional singer about how to relax their bodies and warm up their voices before singing as part of the event and sang with children from over 1000 schools across the country via a web event.

In Reception classes the children have enjoyed learning and singing nursery rhymes with a modern twist.

In Autumn 2 the children also experienced a live music event at the Junior School. This was arranged through the Norfolk Music Hub. Please see the update about this event on our Special Events Page.

Christmas Music 2019

EYFS:

In the EYFS children have been practising the Christmas songs, ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’, ‘Santa Shark’ and ‘Jingle Bells’.  The children all worked hard to remember the words and actions to the songs and looked great in their festive hats as they performed to Year 1 and Year 2 and their adults.

Key Stage 1 Performance:

Children in Key Stage 1 worked very hard to perfect and perform their ‘Aladdin Trouble’ Musical Pantomime in December. The panto shared the adventures of Aladdin, a princess, a magical lamp and a genie who could grant 3 wishes. The children did a great job remembering their lines, acting, dancing and singing some very catchy and intricate songs!  Staff and families were very proud of the excellent performance. Well done to everyone involved!

Christmas Choir:

During the Autumn Term children from Year 1 and 2 were able to join a regular singing club and be part of our ‘Christmas Choir’. The Choir were excited to learn several traditional songs and carols as well as some modern songs and took part in two special performances for the whole school and their grown ups.Songs included in the performances were: ‘Jingle Bells, ‘We Wish you a Merry Christmas’, ‘Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer’ and ‘Deck the Halls’. Well done everyone!
