Mrs Gordon - Music and Rhythm

 We have been learning to play the recorder using the B and A notes. Firstly we had to learn how to hold the recorder correctly and how to produce a sound. Then we moved our fingers over the correct holes on the instrument to play the notes. We are going to use simple sheet music to play a tune.

Chinese New Year


The children have been making their own monkey drums using paper plates and beads threaded onto string. We played our finished drums to some Chinese New Year music.

Making monkey drums

Exploring instruments and creating relaxing sounds on an Ocean Drum.


We have been looking at how an Ocean Drum is made and how we can create different calming sounds.

We have also used percussion instruments to explore rhythm and use our listening skills to repeat a rhythmic pattern.
