Year 4 2022 - 2023

Week beginning 23.1.22

To finish our block of learning in music, the children prepared an arrangement for a verse or chorus of ‘This little light of mine’ . They designed their arrangements with different rhythms, vocal effects and solo parts. It was fantastic to see and hear! The children also started their new Art topic and used compasses to draw circles.

Week beginning 16.1.23

Fantastic work in music this week. The children have been playing glockenspiels to the tune of 'This Little Light Of Mine', and experimenting with arrangements to sing 'I wanna sing scat'. Next week, we will be moving on to our next topic which is art based. We are all looking forward to it!
