It has been a long time since we’ve all been together at school and no matter how much I enjoyed seeing you all online I am so looking forward to seeing you again in person, properly socially distanced, of course!
There will be a few changes and challenges that we will have to face as a music class as we start the year, the first being that, for the time being, I will be visiting you in your homerooms rather than you coming to me in the music room.
We will start the year with a listening unit and explore together music from different times and cultures.
Well, that was quite a year of excitement!
Enjoy your summer and I’ll see you when we get back to school.
We ended our year with a virtual talent show.
Here’s the links to the shows plus some more very talented children that we couldnt quite fit in on the day or whose videos we coudn’t show in full but whose talents deserve to be shared!
This year’s holiday concert will feature EY and lower grade school with each class performing an item on stage. The theme of the show will be ‘The Greatest Gift of All’ and each class will feature in the show.
Class items will be posted on the class blogs for the children to practice at home so why not help them to sing along?
September 16th is Dot Day and as well as dotty activities and wearing dotty clothes to school we will get together to sing the dot song.
Here are the words and the actions for you to learn.
Happy dot day, dudes.
Welcome to a new year of music making here at KIS. We have many exciting things in store and many new things to learn.
Our first unit, Inspiring Individuals, a school-wide unit, takes a look at our quality learning behaviours and how they look in the music classes.
At KIS we believe that quality learning behaviours include:
Striving for understanding
Developing our passions
An inclusive and caring community
Taking ethical action.
