5/6 and 1/2 Music

5/6 and 1/2 Music

The year 5/6 and 1/2 students enjoyed playing two of their favourite games in music this week.

The first game is called Moving Detectives. One student is chosen as the leader and one student is chosen as the detective. Students stand in a circle and when the music starts the leader moves to the music and the class copies their dance moves. The detective has three guesses to pick the leader.

The second game is called The Beat Goes Round The Room. In this game students stand in a circle and pass the phrase around the room keeping a steady beat. If they miss a beat they are out! There are a number of variations such as, using funny voices and adding movement.
