Mrs Cador: July 2015
We held a celebration of our musical talents during assembly yesterday and it was lovely to share them with our parents too.
Every child from Base 2 to Base 5 took part; some performed as whole class ensembles, some in groups and some were brave enough to stand and perform alone as soloists.
Each class chose something they wanted to share from this term's music lessons.
Base 2 have done really well learning the recorder and stayed together perfectly as they played.
Base 3 gave us a fanfare introduction and a dance to accompany their performance of 'La Morisque'.
Base 4 sang and body-popped for us with children accompanying on instruments, conducted by Will K.
Base 5 were inspired to create their own compositions based on the 'Unsquare Dance', a musical piece written by the American jazz composer Dave Brubeck.
We enjoyed the recorder playing of Tiegan, Melissa, Ruby, Molly L, Jemma and Jasmine. Melissa asked to share her playing on the xylaphone, which she has been learning to play in her own time. We smiled proudly as James, Harry, Ryan, Ethan and Alfie picked up their guitars to strum and pluck 'One dime' for us! And we loved James' solo performance on his electric guitar!
The assembly wasn't only a celebration of our talented musicians but also the fantastic music teaching and learning that has taken place this term. We have to say a very big thank you to Mrs Pascall, as we couldn't have done it without her enthusiasm, specialism and commitment to giving our children the very best musical experiences. Thank you!
Something to look forward to: Year 5 and 6 will be taking part in 'Singfest 16' next year, which is a massed choir of schools across Cheshire. We'll be starting rehearsals in September!
