Hello! Last week of term! :)
Hope you have been able to have a go at the musical activities I have been putting up here and enjoyed learning some new songs.
To round off the term here is a link to some YCC Kids Songs that the young people from my church have put together. (My Lighthouse and Be Happy are my faves!)
They are fun to join in with and remind us that Jesus is always with us no matter what we are doing or where we are.
I am sorry not to be able to say goodbye to you in person but will pray that you have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing you all back in September.
Keep on singing and making music!
Take care and God bless
Week beg 6/07
Have a look at the song of the week, I can see clearly now, from Singup at home.
It's a lovely sunny, feel good song which I expect the adults in your house will sing along to aswell!
Remember to try some of the activities that go with it.
And have a think about other songs you know that make you feel good. Why do you think that is? Is it the words or the tune or the instruments? Do you have a favourite? Ask your adults too.
Enjoy singing this week :)
Week beg 29/06
This week I would like you to have a look at this lesson all about singing with dynamics (loud and quiet)
Think about your favourite songs...are they loud or quiet or do they have a mixture of dynamics?
Can you make a list of all the loud and quiet sounds that you may hear on a walk outside? Lorries...Wind in the trees...
Or the sounds that animals make...loud like a bear growling or quiet like a mouse squeaking.
Here is a beautiful song called Sakura. (You may remember it from year 2) Is it loud or quiet?
Week beg 22/06
This week have a look at this lesson about clapping to the pulse of a song in 3 and 4 time.
Listen to these two songs from the musical film Shrek. Can you clap along to the pulse and work out if they are in 3 or 4 time?
Most songs are in 2 or 4 time. What other songs can you find in 3 time? Enjoy discovering about metre (the musical word for different patterns of beat)
Have a listen to the Sounds from Kenya clip
Week beg 15/06
This week I would like you to watch Rob's Kitchen music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6eROCAV7IQ&feature=youtu.be and have a go at learning the original cup song (not the one from Pitch Perfect!) All you need is a table top and a plastic cup. It's a bit tricky in places but remember to pause when it says to practise and have a go.
It came from South America, maybe Brazil, which links nicely to our rainforest theme this week.
I thought you would enjoy singing along to the Rainforest song as well.
Can you clap along to the beat and sing the repeated rainforests bit? How many different birds and animals can you see? Which is your favourite? Enjoy :)
Week beg 8/05
This week we are going to learn the song There was an old woman who swallowed a fly. After you have sung along remember to look at the activities too.
Can you sing it from memory and get it in the right order?
What other nonsense rhymes or songs do you know?
As part of our under the sea theme here is a fun song from the little mermaid for you to sing along to. Love this song! Hope you enjoy it too :)
Week beg June 1st
Hello, hope you all had a good half term and have been enjoying the sunshine.
This week we will be learning how to sing a scale. In the lesson below she uses the solfa system of hand movements. It's a bit tricky but have a go.
If you have access to a tuned instrument at home like a keyboard see if you can play a scale.
Here is a fun song for you to sing and dance along to. Enjoy! :)
Week beg 18/05
Hi there, this week have a look at this lesson on how to beat box using rhythmic patterns. I think you'll enjoy this one. There is a little bit of theory learning the notes that represent the beats but a chance to have a go as well.
If you know any good songs to beat box to maybe you can using the skills you have just learnt.Have fun! :)
Here is a beautiful song that I want to share with you all. It's called The Blessing and the words are a promise taken from the bible. This version sung by children is particularly lovely and this is my prayer to you all over this difficult time. I hope it speaks to you heart. Make sure you share it with your adults. God bless you all.
Week beg 11/05
Hi there, this week we will be learning about pulse. Follow this link for a lesson. Hope you enjoy clapping along to the examples and learning the new call and response song at the end.
Why don't you try to find the pulse of the songs you hear on the radio or to the adverts on the TV or ask a member of your family to sing their favourite song and clap or tap along to the pulse. Which one was the fastest/slowest? Did any speed up or slow down at the end?
I expect you are all missing your friends.Look for the song You've got a friend in me from Toy story and have a sing along. Remember...singing makes you feel good! :)
Week beg 4/5/20
Hi again, we now have access to the singup at home site which has loads of fun songs and activities so I will be sharing a different link each week. There will be a song to listen to and learn and various things to do related to that song. Look in 'Activities' or the 'Pupil pack'.
This song is about people who help us. We have so many people around us who help us, mums and dads, brothers and sisters, grandparents, doctors and teachers. Think about the ones you have in your life that you can be grateful for.
Use the tracks to learn the tune. Then perform it to your family using the backing track when you feel confident. Hope you enjoy singing along. Try learning the signing actions too. Enjoy!
Hi there, hopefully you have found this page where I will be putting activities for you to do over the next few weeks
I hope you enjoyed singing and dancing along to the skeleton songs last week.
Here is another! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoMhmGdOXDg
This week I would like you to have a go at making up your own bones rap using some of the words for bones in our bodies. Try using skull, femur, fibula and pelvis. (Do you know where these are in your body?)
Here’s a rap to give you some ideas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcOKroG_VHo
Say the words or choose your own and count how many syllables they have( 1,2 or 3) Can you say where in your body it is eg: Skull...in my head, patella...in my knee.
Try clapping along to the rhythm. If you have a keyboard set a steady beat to perform to. Enjoy rapping!
