In music this term we have learnt abut 'tonality' in music and how some chords are sad (minor) and some are happy (major). We have enjoyed learning the Wellerman song.

We have also ben playing rhythms on the Tambo Bamboo. It was great fun!

Year 4 have been looking at how music is written down and learning to read notation. we have been playing the recorder and have learnt 4 notes so far. We are following the music on the screen and playing along. It is quite tricky!

We've also been singing lots of songs too.

Year 4 are learning to play the ukulele. We have learnt about chords and are trying to play the chords C, F and G7. We have been plucking and strumming the strings and recapping on our key words of pitch, dynamics, tempo and pulse.

We have also been doing lots of singing too!
