This is an exciting addition to our music after school clubs.
Ukulele’s are a small stringed instrument. The children are learning to play chords and tunes to songs.
This term we are offering a recorder club where children can learn to play an instrument and learn basic notation reading skills.
Choir we be working hard preparing for the Junior Music Festival which will be held at the Hexagon on Monday 18th November. Here are the words for the songs – All the King’s Men wordbook (1)
The music tracks can be accessed at https://helentoole8.wixsite.com/smas-music You will need the password to listen to them! Remember that we are Part 2!
Choir is run by one of our teachers. The children have the opportunity to work towards a performance in a range of venues and contexts across the year.
Last year, choir performed in the following events:
Maestros Junior Music Festival at the Hexagon where the children learnt a number of songs to perform with a number of other Reading schools.
School shows held at Christmas and during the summer term.
Following on from the success of Steel Pans being delivered as part of our Year 4 curriculum, we have been running a Steel Pan club. We are lucky to have the extremely talented Culture Mix.
The children who attend the club are able to build on the skills they learnt in Year 4 and continue to develop these once they move year groups. We are always on the look out for performance opportunities and have taken part in a steel pan festival. Recently, we were lucky enough to have one child perform at the Albert Hall.
