Music in 5L
Friday 26th January | 8 comments
Over the last few weeks in 5L, we have been trying out a new scheme of work in music. It involves learning a new song in depth each half-term (being able to perform it with both our voices and instruments). Our song for the current half-term is Bon Jovi’s ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’, which the children have very much enjoyed performing.
In our music lessons this week and last week, we spent time learning each section of the song (verses, choruses and bridges) to the point where we have been able to perform it. I was blown away by how well the children performed and I’m sure you will be too!
We also had a go at using the glockenspiels to play along with the music and though we are keeping it simple to start with, the class did quite well at staying in time with the beat. We will hopefully build on these skills in the lessons to come.
