Year 1 have been learning about the Beatles (I remember having so much fun in Year 1 doing this with you!!!)  They have invited the whole school to join in with this task!

'I would like you to experiment with making different sounds. You may want to make your own instruments, you may have your own musical instruments that you could play, or you might want to use a variety of household objects that could be turned into instruments for the purpose of this task. Once you have spent time experimenting, I would like you to play along to The Beatles 'All You Need is Love' track and ask someone to record/video you doing this. If you can email these to me, I will create a "Mash-up" of all of the work. It does not need to be the whole song. The most important thing is that you have FUN making music!' 

Email videos to me and I will forward them on to Miss Samuel.

Monday 1st June

This week we are going to be learning a happy song all about singing.  Singing is a great way to keep us happy and feel good.  There are some activities to go with the song to help you learn about syllables in the lyrics of songs and for you to come up with your own lines for the song.  Have fun and enjoy singing with your family!

Sing - Monday 1st June
