Grade 1 & 2 Animal Raps

In music in term 3, the Grade 1/2 students worked in small groups to create their own Animal Raps! The raps were based on a rap that we learnt together called ‘Cats Sleep Anywhere’, and some hip hop songs we listened to in music. The focus was on rhyme and rhythm, and the students had a lot of fun writing and recording their raps, and choregraphing dance moves to go with them.

Desert Film Music with Grade 1/2.

Drawing on inspiration from Visual Art with Chelsea, Grade 1/2 have created film music to describe what can be found in the desert. Sticks, Stones, Snakes, Lizards, Tumbleweeds, Dead Trees and Vast Open Spaces are just some of the things the students chose to recreate using anything and everything they could find in the music room. Some of my favourite music has been created in the desert, which is a place of seemingly infinite inspiration and mystery.

All of these soundscapes were performed live by the students while watching the accompanying video on the projector in the music room. Old school meets new school.

Well done Grade 1/2!

 

 

Volunteers wanted!

Hi everyone,

I’m after some volunteers to help cut out the Grade 3/4’s Barong Masks. It’s quite thick cardboard and the students have been struggling to cut them out. If anyone is available from 9-10am on Monday morning and would like to help, I would be very grateful!

Monster puppets!

As part of the Artists as Illustrators unit last term, the Grade 1s and 2s discovered the work of Maurice Sendak, with a particular focus on the illustrations in Where the wild things are. The students spent five weeks, sketching and constructing their puppets and the results were wonderful.
