Progress Across The School

YEAR 1

Kanzi Class

 

Term 1: Beside the Seaside

 

Week 1 - WALT: use my voice to speak, sing and chant.

We looked at learning songs together. We can sing Boom Chikka Boom now and the Penquin Song!

 

 

Week 2 - WALT: join in with familiar and unfamiliar songs.

We can sing the 'Rock Pool Song' and we had fun singing it slowly and then getting faster. We enjoyed making up our own actions.

 

Week 3 - WALT: sing with expression and from memory.

We looked at the lyrics of the song ‘I do like to be beside the seaside’.  We discussed what a prom is (short for promenade) and that when this song was written (1907) it was usual for there to be brass bands playing music. We then learnt the song. It was great fun. Have a go yourself... 'I do like to be beside the seaside song'. 

 

Week 4 - WALT:  adapt the lyrics of a song to make it more modern.

We made up our own modern version of the song (see below). Can you try and sing our version at home to your grown up?

 

Oh! I do like to eat beside the seaside!

I do like to eat beside the sea!

I do like to eat up all the fish and chips!

Into my tum tum,

“Tiddely-yum-yum yum!”

 

Oh! I do like to dive into the water!

I do like to dive into the sea!

I do like to surf into the big wet waves!

Make a splish splash splosh,

“Tiddely- splish splash splosh!’

 

So just let us be beside the seaside!

I’ll be with Kanzi Class with glee

And there’s lots of friends beside,

I should like to be beside,

Beside the seaside,

Beside the sea!

 

Week 5 - WALT:  use theme vocabulary to create new lyrics for a song.

We decided to create a new version of 'Old MacDonald had a farm' and make it about the seaside.

 

Week 6 - WALT: accompany singing with untuned percussion.

 

We discussed which songs have been our favourite to learn this term and voted to perform ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’. We learnt that accompanying singing with an instrument does not always mean playing every single note! Some of us played along to the pulse of the song and some of us played a note/beat at the end of each line. We split into two groups and performed to half of the class.

 

                         

 

 

Week 7

WALT: Pupil Voice

 

Term 2 - Toys

 

Kanzi Class

Week 1WALT: sing a song from memory.

 

This week in music we enjoyed learning a song from the film 'Pinocchio' We watched a clip of Pinocchio performing 'I've got no strings'. We then learnt the song together, creating our own actions. 

 

      

 

Week 2 - WALT: sing a song from memory.

This week in music we enjoyed learning a song from the film 'Toy Story'. We learnt the song together, creating our own actions. 

 

Week 3 - WALT: listen to and understand different moods in music.

 

This week children were shown a clip of the Sugar Plum Fairy from the Ballet version of ‘The Nutcracker’. Children learnt that it is a very famous ballet and is usually performed around Christmas time. Many people go and see this performed in London.  

We talked about what the word ‘timbre’ means; that all instruments, including voices, have a particular sound quality, eg squeaky. We then listened to some music from the Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky. We talked about the timbre of the music, and how it made us feel. We discussed whether we liked/disliked the music.

 

 

Week 4/5 WALT -  compose a piece of music in a group.

 

We worked in groups to begin to compose a piece of music to depict a toy waking up, moving around, then going back to sleep. We thought about good toys we could use, for example toy soldiers, toy car or a doll. We discussed which instruments we could select, build-up of volume during middle section and volume/tempo at the end. We will finish our composition next week and will think about ways in which we could show graphic notation for own song.

 

          

 

Week 7 WALT: compose a musical score and perform a composition to an audience.

 

Children practiced their percussion composition, inspired by moving toys. They recorded the sound, tempo and volume of their piece using drawings and symbols. Children enjoyed performing their final pieces to the class.
