WB: 1st June

Hello everyone!
I hope you had a lovely half term holiday. We are now into June which means the Virtual Big Sing is getting closer! Did you see the news that some of the celebrities who will be singing with us have been announced?
The first to be revealed is The Masked Singer’s Queen Bee and Girls Aloud Star Nicola Roberts.
You can watch her being revealed then performing on The Masked Singer here:

It has also been announced that we will be joined by The Kingdom Choir. A truly inspiring British Gospel choir. Watch them singing at Harry and Meghan’s Royal wedding. What do you notice about their performance? Is there anything they are doing that you could do when singing in a choir? Listen to how they use their voices and look at how they use their bodies and faces.

The latest to be announced is Jessie J. Here she is performing in another Virtual Concert earlier this year.

If you haven’t signed up to take part from home yet, your parent or guardian can follow this link to register so you will be able to join in.

For this week’s Singing Practice there are now 4 songs and 2 dances on Charanga for all of you to watch, listen and join in with.
Keep working on last week’s songs, then start to learn our 2 newest songs; Lean On Me and Don’t Stop Believing. Begin with the Lean On Me tutorial by Mark which has a warm up before starting to learn the lyrics. Then there is also a new dance routine for Don’t Stop Believing to watch and start joining in with.
This week, I have been learning Lean On Me for my Ukulele Project, but I wasn’t by myself, I got to play a virtual duet with another teacher. Watch to see who sings along with my ukulele.

When you log in to Charanga, you will also see that your year group has a music unit to work on. In your unit, you will find a range of activities to work through. There will be music to listen to and appraise, games to play and a song to learn and play along with. Log in at least once a week and work through the activities.

If you need more support with that, you can look here: 
or talk to your class teacher.

Don’t forget to keep sending pictures to your teacher of what musical activities you get up to and we’ll share more of them in our gallery.

Have a good week everyone,
Mrs Booth
