Grade 2 Music
Ways of Being - EXPRESSIVE
The grade 2 classes have been learning the characteristics of a dotted note. They use their minds to describe how it differs from the even rhythm and how it feels when using it. Mostly, the lessons are all about listening, interpreting and expressing their thoughts. Because you know, performing arts learners of Nord Anglia are EXPRESSIVE. Wink!
Grade 1 Music
Ways of Being - COLLABORATIVE
The grade 1 classes focus on learning Bach’s scale shapes. Students are able to distinguish the direction of the pitches whether it is rising, falling or even hilly. One of the activities was that students had a partner to describe the shapes of the scale. The students were very excited to collaborate with their classmates.
SENIOR KINDERGARTEN Music
Ways of Being – CULTURALLY AWARE
The senior kindergarten classes are learning Bach’s dance rhythm for Bourrées which is a French lively dance. Students clap, stomp and play the piano to copy the rhythm. They also learned some details about the French dance to better understand the topic and to also be culturally aware.
