Rhythmic Performances

Skiddaw class have been music mad this week. We have learnt the difference between rhythms and beats playing drums and other percussion instruments. We know the names of many obscure instruments in our collection as well as how to play them properly.

We have played as a whole class band and then worked in smaller groups choosing to perform our piece in binary (AB) form or ternary (ABA) form. After reviewing videos of our first performances we discussed how we could improve, such as positioning ourselves in a group so we can all see each other and tips and techniques about how to keep us all in time.

Here are our final performances – can you spot if they are binary or ternary form?


Visit from Tim Farron

Congratulations to all the pupils in school who designed a Christmas card for Tim Farron’s competition in December.  Today we had a very special visit – Tim came into school to present the runner up with a lovely prize.  There were just over 1000 entries across the South Lakes in total, so we are very pleased to have a pupil in school achieving the silver award and three other entries gaining ‘highly commended’!
