Year 4 have started to learn about our new topic, Playlists. Our new Cornerstones curriculum encourages fun and exciting topic learning and each topic starts with a memorable experience. As our learning will be centred around music of the 20th Century, what better way to kick things off than with our very own school music festival!
After we arrived dressed as our favourite musicians, we began our day with a jamming session with Mr Mac, who kindly brought in an array of instruments for the children to have a go at playing. Throughout the day we enjoyed a song lyric quiz, crossword treasure hunt and a good old game of musical chairs (with a 20th Century playlist to match!)
The headliners of the festival were the fantastic Little Moth, who came to our school hall to give us a live performance. Jen and Tony played us a mix of old and new music with a bit of music history along the way – what a treat! The children really enjoyed their astounding performance (as did myself and Mr Mac).
Year 4 learnt about the music their grown-ups have grown up with and I learnt a few new dance moves along the way. It’s certainly not a day we will forget.
Watch out Glastonbury!
