Stop!

In Music we have started our new unit.

Today we discussed if we knew what “Grime” music was.

We then learnt that

Grime is a style of urban British music that is a mix of hip hop, jungle, garage and ragga – developed in the early 2000’s from UK electronic music styles. Rapping is one of the main elements of this style with heavy basslines, turntables, digital and electronic sounds used. The lyrics are written from a place of truth about the world, feelings and experiences.

Finally we enjoyed a song called Stop! Don’t forget to also listen it at home by logging onto Charanga.

Trapland


We’re getting better and better. Today we played Trapland and looked at musical notation.

Big breaths now !

Mr Lo will setup Charanga on Wonde this week so that Robins can access the learning at home!

Don’t forget to play this at home!

Improvise and Perform Ensemble

Today Year 4 had a very intensive music lesson.

First, we worked together to compose our own version . We used Charanga’s interactive music composition software. We thought about the pitch and duration of each note.

Then we combined our singing skills and tuned instrument (glockenspiel) skills to sing and play. Well done for recognising the staff and musical notation!

Brass Instruments

Robins are making good progress. Many are now confident in playing notes C, D , E

Today they explored how music is created, produced and communicated by looking closely at temp, pitch and notation. They played a came where a double crotchet was called coffee and a minim was called tea.
