All of our children have been busy making music and enjoying all our lovely instruments.
Year 4 are learning to play the Ukulele at the moment and Year 6 have been enjoying learning about Music Technology on iPads loaned from our Music Hub “ Soundstorm”.
Year 5 were recently lucky enough to have a Music Workshop led by someone from the BSO , who helped them compose a piece of music that may be featured in the BSO Concert that Year 5 will be watching in May.
Concert Week Summer 2021
What a fabulous week of concerts we had! All the children really did themselves proud and there was some beautiful singing and playing. It was so lovely to have "live" music again and to be able to perform to an audience.
Here are the links to the films of the concerts:

Year 5 have been learning about how sounds can be changed using technology. They have learnt about Synthesisers, Sampling and Looping music, including watching how the music for Shaun the Sheep was composed, using a computer programme, linked to a Keyboard.
To consolidate their learning, Year 5 produced a Soundscape, making music that described a poem about Outer Space. They used an iPad App "Imaschine" as well as creating clusters with different Keyboard and Piano sounds.
On July 15th, Years 3 and 4 were treated to a concert by Joe’s Jazz “Mambossa”. Everyone enjoyed it very much!
Well done Patrick in 6CP for some fantastic Electric Guitar playing!

In the past, we were lucky enough to have a visit from a Norwegian School Band "Korsvoll Skolekorps". They are all members of their School Band in a school in Oslo. They were visiting Bournemouth for a week and came to perform to us. After a lovely concert, where they played and told us about life in Norway, they then came to our Music Room, where our Flutes put on a concert for them! It was a really lovely occasion.
