Grade 3 have been learning how to play A, G and E on the soprano recorder. We then sang ‘Apple Tree’ played a game. 2 people were the ‘gates’ and whoever was caught at the end of the song had to play a secret code to unlock the gates. If the secret code used the notes A, G and E and had a nice sound (gentle breath and no ‘peekaboo’ holes), the gates would open and they would be free again! The students did such a good job that we ended up creating an extra set of gates! We then finished the lesson by revising La, Sol, Mi (A, G, E) on staff whiteboards.
