The Junior School boys have had a fabulously creative start to 2018. Boys in Year 1 to 4 are in the thick of inquiry-based music units and we are having lots of fun. The Year 1 boys are steadily adding to their repertoire a collection of songs that highlight the new rhythms they are learning; boys in Year 2 have just finished writing and performing their own rhythm compositions; the Year 3 lads have been having fun picking the 'odd one out' by focusing on the placement of accents to determine whether music is in threes or fours; and the Year 4 gents have been exploring 'feels' in music and the musical elements that help to characterize various genres.

Much excitement is brewing in the land of Year 5 as the boys have begun exploring the script for their musical (to be performed on Tuesday 26 June in the Dickinson Centre). They have made an impressive start to learning a couple of songs already and are eagerly anticipating the date when Miss Samson finally divulges the cast list - watch this space.
