Mr Morrison is our Music Subject Lead.
Jan 2020: The children added atmosphere, through their musical accompaniment and 'waves', to readings about St Paul's sea journey to Malta at Chester Cathedral. 'The sound and vision effects for the readings really did enhance the story telling, and the precision of creating the Maltese Flag was very moving.' Congratulations email
What a lovely treat for mums, dads and grandparents — our wonderful Base 3 musicians performing in their very own concert! Newsfeed (Brass concert)
Jan 2020: We've also been listening to Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, composing our own trills, swoops and leitmotifs using triads to show the daring and darting flight of the eight sisters.
'The children have been continuing with their singing, this time adding rap to their repertoire ! I can't believe they managed to say all those words so well! I loved seeing you bobbing and moving to the beat; wonderful! We will soon be bringing in the skills we learnt last term and building on them by adding notation and playing instruments to the songs we have learnt.'
Throughout the term we have been listening to a wide range of classical composers- both modern and old. We have listened to the music from the film of 'Mortal Engines' , we have listened to music that Sir Christopher Wren would have listened to and enjoyed the work of many more famous composers. Today we began to learn more about notation- we learnt about notes, beats and how to read these. We then used this to play 'We Three Kings' and we even attempted Beethoven's 5th Symphony.

'I also really enjoyed Blizzard — our winter Concerto — we performed in front of the school. Blizzard — Ice cracking — Blizzard — Dancing snowflakes — Blizzard — Winter Wonderland — Blizzard — Winter's come — Blizzard. Isaac was the main conductor and we had different conductors for each group but Isaac controlled it all.'

'I enjoyed 'The King of the Birds' I really enjoyed doing the music — there were all kinds of musical instruments and some of them I had never played before: castanets, triangles.'
