The KIS Song

We’re KIS!


The KIS Song

We’ve got the knowledge
Inspiring Individuals
We’re filled with the spirit of learning
The spirit of loving
The spirit of joy and we’re blessed
We’re KIS

They say that knowledge is power
And I’m a powerful girl
With my feet firmly planted
And my head in a whirl

The world is changing every day
But I’ll learn new things on the way
I’ll go the distance to make a difference
‘Til I can finally say

We’ve got the knowledge
Inspiring Individuals
We’re filled with the spirit of learning
The spirit of loving
The spirit of joy and we’re blessed
We’re KIS

I’m filled with inspiration
By the things around me
From music and dancing
To the birds in the trees

The world is changing every day
But I’ll learn new things on the way
I’ll go the distance to make a difference
‘Til I can finally say

We’ve got the knowledge
Inspiring Individuals
We’re filled with the spirit of learning
The spirit of loving
The spirit of joy and we’re blessed
We’re KIS

I’m filled with the spirit
That life was made for me
Surrounded by friendship
I know that I can be

The world is changing every day
But I’ll learn new things on the way
I’ll go the distance to make a difference
‘Til I can finally say

We’ve got the knowledge
Inspiring Individuals
We’re filled with the spirit of learning
The spirit of loving
The spirit of joy and we’re blessed
We’re KIS

We have changed the lyrics of candy to fit in with the show. Here are the new lyrics:
Candy

I like candy hard and sweet
It’s so fine it can’t be beat
Chocolate in the morning time
Chocolate anytime is fine
I want candy
I want candy
I want candy
I want candy
Cotton candy wrapped around a stick
I can eat it and I never get sick
Gobstoppers and a candy bar
I never vomit in my daddy’s car
I want candy
I want candy
I want candy
I want candy
Box of chocolates and a bag of sweets
They must be my favourite eats
Some day soon I’ll make yours mine
Then I’ll have candy all the time
I want candy
I want candy
I want candy
I want candy
Candy in the morning time
Candy in the hot sunshine
Candy baby can’t you see
All I want is your candy!
Candy in the morning time
Candy in the hot sunshine
Candy baby can’t you see,
All I want is your candy!
(hey, hey, hey, hey)
All I want is your candy!
(hey, hey, hey, hey)
All I want is your candy!

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.

How do we do this in the music classes?

Musical instruments and their families

Did you know that, just like us, musical instruments have families?

We group musical instruments together by looking at what they share, what they have in common.

There are four major families
The string family
The brass family
The woodwind family
The percussion family

Here they are:

Strings

Brass

Woodwind

Percussion

Here they are all playing together:

Can you feel it?

Music connects us to our emotions and in KG for this unit we’re exploring how music makes us feel.
Music can be so many things; happy, sad, exciting and even scary. We are experiencing different pieces of music and examining the emotional connections we have when we listen.

Here’s some music we are listening to:

Anvil of Crom

Threnody

Adagio

Morning from Peer Gynt

We’re also learning a song about how love, sharing and a little song can make our world a better place. It’s the real thing!

Welcome back to KIS.
In KG this year we will learn about musical stories, listen to, and be inspired to, create art from powerful music, sing, dance and perform as we look forward to a great year ahead filled with opportunities for authentic music-making. We will learn about the instruments of the orchestra and how they are grouped in families and what they sound like when played with on their own and together.
