Year 5 pupils will be making comments on here to say what they are doing in their lessons and how they are getting on.

A Musical World Book Day:

Our rehearsal this week coincided with World Book Day! Have a look at some of the famous book characters playing their instruments!

Zorro jazzin' it up!

Indiana Jones trying to look cool!

You'll always find this Wanda making a noise!

A white rabbit playing a saxophone? Are we in Wonderland?

A trumpet playing wrestler - not at all scary!

Mr Hamilton also video recorded our rehearsal. Click on the Music Service's link to see more!

February 2012 Update:

We have been learning our instruments for almost 6 months now and we are making fantastic progress. We can now read musical notation and can use and understand some musical vocabulary. We are even beginning to play music together and will be working hard next half term to rehearse for Anagh Coar Orchestra's debut performance.

Wow Year 5 - you really do develop a wide range of skills for learning during your Soundstart sessions. Resilience, remembering, readiness and relationships mentioned so far... can anyone think of any others they might have used? I am sure you can! I am so impressed with how you are doing and look forward to hearing how your next stage in band rehearsals goes tomorrow. Good luck.

What a fantastic first public performance you all gave in the year 4/5 assembly! Wonderful playing both in the band and on the whistles and percussion. I thought the announcers kept it all flowing really well and the final song (a world premiere, no less) will give everyone present some fantastic musical memories to enjoy for a long time to come. Very, very well done!
