Spring is Coming

Preparations for the ES Spring Concert is well and truly underway. Today, we wrote our own song in 1P based on our concert theme – ‘Spring and Growth’! One of our clever students, Dohui, started us off by sharing her wonderful ideas and then everyone collaborated by brainstorming lyrics and using beautiful singing voices. Feeling very proud of my students!

Here it is – “Spring is Coming” by Dohui and 1P!

Spring is coming
Spring is coming
Plants are growing
And flowers are blooming

You can see the cherry blossoms
Birds are chirping in the trees
Bees are buzzing, spreading pollen
Spring is coming!

Echo Playing

After some great solo singing in 1P, students did an excellent job echo playing on Orff instruments.

The Chimes of Dunkirk

I am a huge fan of folk dance (actually, I just love movement and dance in general!) because it’s such a fun and effective way to engage students while helping them to understand steady beat, form/structure, sequences, musical cues, timing, anticipation, collaboration, spatial awareness, formations, culture, history…the list goes on!

Today, we learnt ‘The Chimes of Dunkirk’ dance in Grade 1. So much fun!
