TOMMORROW - WEDNESDAY 8TH JULY

ONLINE CONCERT - 2PM

Tomorrow there is a free Musical Comedy Cabaret. With the help of NYMAZ, there is a live stream performance from Graffiti Classics - 16 strings, 8 dancing feet and 4 voices with 1 aim: to make classical music wickedly funny and fantastically exhilarating. Not your usual string quartet!

See the link below how to watch it. Log onto it and click on the link for the concert. I guarantee it will put a smile on your face. The concert lasts about 35 minutes with a question and answer session afterwards. So if you have a question you would like to ask you can email your questions to

info@ nymaz.org.uk. It's suitable for any age and also in a link below is a resource pack which gives guidance on how to join the concert. 

Really hope you enjoy the concert. If you do get chance to watch it, please do let me know what you thought of it at

DON'T FORGET ABOUT THIS:

THE DAILY SINGING RESOURCE

Don't forget about this amazing resource you can enjoy with your families at home. Below is the link from the Diocese of Leeds. Just to remind you, it is a free resource for families at home and for all primary schools, delivering virtual singing lessons. The teacher - Charlotte - is a talented music teacher and leads the sessions with great enthusiasm. The sessions include sacred music, RE and music curriculum learning, and lots of vocal fun and songs to keep the children engaged in lifting their voices to God. The lessons are available at 2pm, Monday to Friday.

 

WEEK ENDING 26.06.2020 - CHARANGA LEADER BOARD

So well done to all those children that have logged onto Charanga, continuing your music journey at home.

Hello children, hope you all had chance to celebrate and reflect/remember VE Day. With my family, we made our own bunting and decorations, observed the 2 minute silence on our doorstep and we had afternoon tea whilst listening to World War 2 songs. It was a day of reflection of the past, of all those that sacrificed so much for the freedom we enjoy today; and the present, thinking of those who are working so hard on the front line in hospitals, battling Covid-19. 

4.5.2020

 

With this Friday being a special day to celebrate VE 75, I have found a link to share with you: songs of World War 2. I hope you enjoy listening to them with your family. Below are some questions I would like you to consider when listening to these nostalgic songs.

Year 1 & 2 Musical Workshop

On Monday 17th June, Year 1 & 2 had the privilege of receiving a music workshop from Geoff (BlueJam). Geoff taught us an original rap song all about the importance of recycling and caring for our world. We incorporated our RainSticks (made from junk recycling) that we made in class with Mrs Richardson. 

We are SO excited to share this song, along with all the other songs we are learning for our Little Big Sing Concert on Monday 1st July.
