Making Music

 We have been busy in the music room since we returned from Spring Break.  Some of our highlights have been singing and dancing to our new school song "Reach for the Stars."  

Reaching for the Stars!

Be a friend and we'll go far!

We care for ourselves and each other

Grade 2/3s started Recorder Karate.   Super stars!
Our Grade 2/3 classes have been busy learning recorders.  We've now learned how to read the Treble Clef staff (EGBDF, FACE) and can read and play B - A - G notes.  All students are preparing the song "Hot Cross Buns" for a recorder test.  Each student will receive a white belt when they've passed.

Preparing for the Winnipeg Symphony.  Responding to the music.
For the past month, our Grade 4/5 students have been learning and listening to 11 classical music songs that will be played by the Winnipeg Symphony on our April 23 field trip to the Concert Hall.  We have discussed and experienced different stories and musical themes behind the music.
