Performing Arts Term 1 Overview

The focus for term 1 is all about Music. Students from Prep to year 6 will have the opportunity to explore all avenues in this exciting area.

The Prep students will be exploring pitch, tempo and rhythm through the use of tuned and un-tuned instruments. They will be experimenting with making sound and creating melodies with xylophones and glockenspiels.

Students in Year 1 and 2 will using recorders and ukuleles to work on simple songs and as a base to explore pitch, tempo, dynamics and tone.

The year 3 and 4 students will be focussing on guitar to create melodies on single strings while also progressing to basic chords.

Students in year 5 and 6 will choose an instrument of their choice to explore making music in a group. They will be looking at the process of writing and reading music in conjunction with writing lyrics.

This year, there will be a ‘Rock Club’ lunchtime group open to students from Year 1-6. It will be every Monday in the Performing Arts Room at 1:45pm-2:15pm. The focus is looking at the music style of rock and working towards performing for audiences.
