Music Extravaganza at Elizabeth Woodville25.04.2017
The beginning of a new term brings a new topic to all the classes at Elizabeth Woodville. This term our theme is ‘Don’t Forget Your Passport!’ The children enjoyed two activity-packed days based on music from around the world. Year 3 and 4 took a ‘Road trip to USA’ and learnt the notes, rhythms and lyrics to the famous Route 66 by Chuck Berry. They also had a great time learning the states of America in the form of a rap! Year 5 & 6 said “Hola Mexico” by learning to sing – in Spanish – La Cucaracha. They also made their own set of pan pipes to play along to a Justin Timberlake track – ‘Can’t stop the feeling.’
Key Stage one children had a fantastic day learning all about the Brazilian carnival. They had a fun time dancing and playing the Samba, learning all the rhythms within Samba music and playing them on lots of different musical instruments. Our Foundation stage children learnt a brilliant Samba routine and proved to be excellent dancers! At the end of each day the children gave amazing performances to the school and were ready to continue their journey around the world!
