Summer Curriculum Overview

Music Curriculum In Action

 

Summer at Waverley:

The children in Key Stage 2 have been learning to play the Ukelele with Mrs Anderson our resident Music Teacher.  We have been learning how to strum, make chords and when we put those skills together we have been able to sing songs.

 

Keep all eyes peeled for the new stars of today in the year 5/6 play- The Jungle Book.  The auditions have taken place, parts have been allocated and now the training programme can begin to get those vocal chords moving, dance skills in line with those of Pinapple studios and acting to make Tom Cruise fear for his job.  Good luck everyone we cant wait to watch the finished product.

 

Mrs Leadbeater has been getting groovy on a Friday afternoon with our sing your heart out, dance to the beat and boogey your pants away to her latest outdoor music hits. Nursery love it.

 

Spring at Waverley:

Year 3 and 4 gave an amazing performance in their Egyptian play with songs from Blondie-'Walk like an Egyptian'  as well as displaying movement and dance pieces to celebrate all they had learnt during their topic work.

 

Mrs Lynch has stated up a sing along lunchtime group for Key Stage 2 to sing their hearts out to the greatest hits of our time.  Ed Sheeran has been a huge success with this Karaoke style club and you can hear voices of angels travelling the corridors very Wednesday lunch time.

 

Nursery have been working on forming bands in the outdoor area with friends.  We have had drummers, lead singers, guitarists, backing vocals and so much more.  We even held a show for the Reception children to come and watch.

 

Autumn at Waverley:

We had a great start to our year with the Halloween Disco.  Reception to Year 6 got to come to the disco to sing dance and even Limbo.  Mrs Leeming was a pro at the limbo and moved in time to the Music whilst doing the limbo and singing.

We had Christmas Nativities from Nursery and Reception with a play from KS1- the jolly Christmas postman which went down a storm with all the parents.  Year 5 and 6 held a carol service at Suggley Dene Church with Father Allun where they sang Christmas songs, hymns and read poetry linked to the spirit of Christmas giving.

Year 6 gave an amazing drumming performance to the whole school. They started the day by working on songs and drumming arrangements.

 

It was important to get into the rhythm with actions to the songs - 'eye of the tiger' was the favourite.

 

They then worked on harmonies - Mr Outterside was in the groove too!

They played different rhythms and utilised different techniques. They used vocal arrangements alongside the driving rhythm.

 

Well done - a great show.

 

UKS2 spent some time learning to keep rhythm with some African drumming.
