WB: 4th May

Good morning everybody!
Mrs Booth here again. 
I am still practising my new ukulele. This week I have been learning to finger pick so that I can play a song that KS2 have sang in the past. Can you recognise it?


Ukulele week 4

Still image for this video

I wonder what I should learn next. Let your teacher know if you have any ideas.

I have lots of musical activities you might want to listen to or try out this week.
* We have a new ’10 pieces’ trailblazing composer to learn about.
* I have some songs for KS1 and for KS2 to learn and practise.
* Finally, a virtual orchestra to enjoy.

If you want to do even more music, there is a fun lesson all about beat box rhythms on the Oak National Academy. Its made for years 3 and 4, but anyone in KS2 would enjoy joining in with it.

KS1, you might  enjoy another game of ‘guess my  instrument’ with one of the Sing Up teachers.


Have a good week everyone,
Mrs Booth


BBC Ten pieces
We have a new piece of music for May written by a Trail Blazing  composer:  Heitor Villa Lobos.
This piece of music is about a way of travelling. I wonder if you can work out what kind of transport it is just  by listening.
Ask someone in your family to click on the link and play you the second video which is an orchestra playing. Without looking, can you guess what kind of vehicle this piece of music is about? How can you tell?
Listen again and try to imagine the journey of that vehicle. How fast is going? Where might it be travelling? 
Have a look at the information on the webpage. Were you right? Now that you know, listen one more time and see if you can make a  picture in your mind of that vehicle and its journey.


KS1 Singing practice:
1. Warm up
Can shake  your sillies out as a warm up?

2. An old song to practice and enjoy: Good to be me
Start learning the signs to add in to this song we already know well.

Also, you might like to keep listening and trying last week’s new song: Travelling by

3.  A new song to listen to and try: Wiggle Jiggle
Try joining in with actions in this fun new song:

KS2  Singing practice:
1. Warm up
Practise your sirens then join in with this choir warming up:


2. An old song to practice and enjoy :
Carry on practising our new big song: One Moment, One people
If you haven’t practised this song yet, look back at  last week’s singing practice and you’ll find links to a lesson to help you learn it and to the music.

3.  A new song: 
Here is a new song to start listening to: Let love shine through
You can find the lyrics  to print here:

Finally, something inspiring to watch:
This video is of a high school in Norfolk  who created a virtual orchestra. What instruments can you spot being played? I wonder if you can spot any of the instruments that are in our Drake School Orchestra.
