Welcome back choir! We warmed up with a walk to the beach, doing lots of actions along the way and blowing up a big beach ball when we got there, with three big breaths to blow it up, and three big ‘shhhhhhhs’ to squash it down again. Then we got out some noisy, coloured yo yos and copied each others’ yo yo sounds. Miss Langley Higgs led a really fun song ‘A sailor went to sea’ with lots of different actions to remember. The choir then sat down to do some music reading and showed how much you have all learned over the last few weeks with some excellent reading of rhythms and recognition of different musical notes.
After warming up our voices with sirening and ‘moo-maa-mee’ sliding scales, the choir learned a new, simple singing game which will help us all to find our pitch – ‘Hello everyone!’ The choir then did some productive work on ‘The water is wide’ and ‘Great Big House’, both of which are sounding better and better. Please try and learn all the words for next time, when we will also run through ‘Senwa Dedende’ and start to prepare for the choir’s debut performance at the school fair on 25 June.
