MUSIC AT HOME DURING SCHOOL CLOSURES
Although you may not have any instruments at home, you can still continue doing some music learning while schools are closed. Sharing music you love with your child is really beneficial - especially some of your favourite music from when you were younger, that they might not hear very often. Or maybe you could put on a playlist while you're crafting or baking and learn some new songs together.
Below are some links to some amazing online resources. Keep checking back for more links - we will add them as we become aware of them!
Music at Barwic Parade
At Barwic Parade we learn that music is a universal language that embodies the highest form of creativity. We believe in inspiring pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians. Studies have recently suggested that pupils attainment in other subjects is raised by the discipline that playing or singing together makes.
We aim to give all pupils a chance to perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
They learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, they have the opportunity to learn an instrument. They understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
We took part in Young Voices in January, going to the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield to sing with around 5000 other children. As usual, it was an amzing day - Tony Hadley, Ruti and the amazing country band 'The Shires' (Mrs Romain may have got a little over-excited about them!) all performed and we got to sing with them and with the incredible Young Voices Band.
Our choir did an amazing job with the performance and they behaved beautifully all day, showing FlyDSA Arena exactly how fab we are at Barwic Parade!
We are already looking forward to next year's Young Voices, which will be their 25th Anniversary. We can't wait to see what they've got in store for this special year!
