Gr. 2 have been developing their aural and rhythmic skills through rhythm dictation. This involves the teacher playing a rhythm multiple times with time in between for them to show what rhythm was played using rhythm cards. When they are ready to hear it again or have finished, students show the teacher by doing a signal of five fingers in the air and one finger on lips. This is the same signal used to indicate for silence or to gain their attention. Grade 1 also uses this signal.
Snapshots from the ES Spring Concert in May 2016. Both the matinee and evening shows were a great success (well done children!). Students performed well and best of all, many told me afterwards that they were proud of themselves for trying their best and had a lot of fun! Thank you to the music team and all ES staff for helping on the day, and to Mr Torii and Mr Haigh for the beautiful photos.
