St Magnus compositions 

Posted by Administrator Tuesday, June 06, 2017 4:29:00 PM

This term in music we have been thinking about our own composing skills, specifically how music can tell a story. We have also been improving our keyboard skills and learning to play chords. We are now putting this all together to create our own compositions to tell the story of St Magnus.

We have been learning Japanese. Mike and Saki came in to talk to us about Japanese culture and teach us some of the language.

Emily came in and taught us some origami.

Emily taught us how to count in Japanese.

We have been learning about the differences between dolphins and porpoises. We had to make notes and then use them to create these posters. We also had to think about how we presented our work.

Miss Clements was really impressed today - we played this! (This is only only our 3rd run through - we can sight read!)

We have been making circuits, and we made some games for P1 - 3 to come and try.

We even made a trip wire that set off an alarm!
