RECORDERS

Dear Families,

After studying the recorder at school, the students are keen to show you what they can do.

For hygiene reasons, each student has been allocated their own recorder and will be responsible for its safe return to school.

Please ensure your child’s recorder is returned to school by Monday 23rdSeptember.Week 10.

(Any unreturned recorders will incur a replacement fee).

I hope you thoroughly enjoy this shared musical experience.

Kind regards,

Sarah Crisp

(Music Teacher)

Welcome to Term 4 Music!

This term, all students will be learning about Boomwhackers! Each coloured Boomwhacker represents a note in the musical scale and when played together or struck on the floor, they produce musical tones. Students will explore how to create different sounds, harmony and rhythms using Boomwhackers (as pictured).

Each class has had a go at playing the Boomwhackers and have each been impressed by these tuned percussion tubes! The students are excited to learn more as the term progresses.
