Rock Club

This is just a taste of weekly rock club sessions. We have lots of jingles for the games and so I have linked those to the pictures on the slides. 5 groovy tunes are linked pieces of music chosen by a member of staff which everyone dances to. All the pupils like to perform a star turn and so I’ve chosen a couple of the more popular song requests.

Summer Fun Music Activities

Summer Fun 1 – For this music activity you will need a simple drum, I suggest a bucket and wooden spoon but you can choose your own, and a spoon and fork.  All the song videos are linked to the pages. There is a choice of two warm up’s or you can use your own.

Summer Fun 2 – For this music activity you will need a simple drum, I suggest a bucket and wooden spoon but you can choose your own, and a tin or baking sheet with a  beater which can be a wooden spoon or similar. If you have any instruments you can of course use those. All the song videos are linked to the page and they should help you to join in with the songs. There is a choice of two warm up’s or you can use your own.

Enjoy making music at home,

It has been another busy year in the department with visits from musicians, new clubs being formed and a record number of pupils completing their bronze Arts Award.

The school choir is fit to burst with almost a third of the school attending every week. As always they performed at the annual Spotlight Christmas concert and were very well received. The concert is a perfect opportunity for pupils to sing in front of a large audience and to mix with pupils from local mainstream primary and secondary schools.

A group of pupils attended a days creative music workshops provided by the Hertfordshire music service Funky Pie Company. Pupils played violins, created compositions using computers and electronic software and performed creative dance. The workshops helped the pupils to discover new skills and to express themselves creatively.

Our two new clubs, music technology and Live Lounge are proving to be very popular. At the technology club pupils from the upper school have been learning how to use Garage Band software to create their own compositions and playing with their friends on the Wii rock band. The new Live Lounge club is led by staff musicians with pupils taking on guest appearances. There are covers of well-known pop songs and more traditional songs.

The focus country for sensory week was Italy. Pupils took part in sensory stories, opera workshops and visited an Italian café, art gallery and made pizzas.

The year finished with a ’Science of Sound’ week collaboration between music, science, geography and art. It was jam packed with activities including junk orchestra workshops, sound compositions and painting to music.
