Don’t Be Grumpy

February 11, 2016 at 12:15 pm

In Key Stage Two assembly today, the children started learning the song Don’t Be Grumpy . After being introduced to the song a couple of weeks ago, the children were very pleased to have the chance to sing the song through a couple of times.

After half term, we plan to sing this as a canon or in a round but what do you think? What feedback would you give us on our first try?

Boomwhacking…I beg your pardon?!?!?!

BOOOM

Whackbooming?

No.

Boomwhacking.

Year 4 children have been given the opportunity to learn how to play boomwhackers. Boomwhackers are tuned percussion instruments, tuned to a particular note. The longer the boomwhacker, the lower the pitch of the note when it is boomed…or whacked. The boomwhacker can be played by tapping it against your hand, whacking it against the floor, or booming two boomwhackers together!

Today, groups of Year 4 children demonstrated their knowledge of boomwhackers in a wonderful assembly this morning. What do you think of our boomwhacking?!?!?

At Farsley Farfield Primary School, Year 3 are provided with the opportunity to learn how to play African drums. These can be known as djembes or bougarabous! They have a very distinct sound and can be very loud! The sessions have focused on having a steady rhythm and a sense of beat and pulse.

This morning, Key Stage 2 were delighted to see what Year 3 had been up to. Below are four videos from this morning’s session. The first shows a video of an African tribe whilst the other three show off some of the activities and skills that Year 3 have learned! Well done everyone, you have inspired many, including the staff!
