It was wonderful to welcome the children back to school this week and we have started a new song to sing during our assembly – ‘We Will Rock You’. The children have been enjoying making the accompaniment for this song using body percussion and have been impressed with how a simple ‘stamp, stamp, clap’ can create so much atmosphere. There have also been some brilliant Brian May impressions!
2YM have started to learn ‘Magic Penny’ for their class assembly, they picked up the melody very quickly and all of the children confidently volunteered to perform a solo during the lesson.
Reception have been reacting to the ‘Can Can’ by Jacques Offenbach using multi-coloured scarves. Initially they followed my movements and then a couple of the children felt as though they could lead the class by creating their own movements to suit the music. Our favourite part was letting go of the scarves at the end and watching them float down over our heads.
