In year 3 we have been learning to play the ukulele. We have had great fun and learnt lots of chords.
Year 3 have been learning the recorder this term. We have continued our reading of musical notation and have learnt several notes. The recorder is a tricky instrument and we have had to really practice. Have a listen!
This term year 3 have been learning how to play the Glockenspiel. We have been learning how to play different notes and have learnt the names of some musical notation such as crotchet and minim.
Year 3 have been looking at how music is written and concentrating on notation and rhythm grids. We've been playing the recorder to help us with this.
We've also been singing some disney songs too!
Year 3 have listened to 'Peter and the Wolf' by Serge Prokofiev which was written in 1936. It tells a story in where each character is represented by different instruments of the orchestra.
