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.

State Schools Spectacular!

State Schools Spectacular!

The senior choir will be participating in their first State Schools Spectacular, Massed Choir Rehearsal this Wednesday at the Melbourne Town Hall.

The students have been practising both at home and at school, which is paying off as their singing is sounding more confident and polished. The choir needs to learn 14 songs (alternating from Part 1 to Part 2) for the concert in September.

We are looking forward to finally hearing the sounds that both parts create when put together!

Music

Belle Vue Primary School offers a music program for all students from Foundation to Grade 6. Our music curriculum focuses on creating an inclusive and supportive environment where students feel confident to take on new challenges and step out of their comfort zones.

The music program consists of a variety of musical games, activities and comprehensive formal lessons taken from the Music Room Classroom Music Program.

Throughout the school year, students experience playing a variety of percussive and melodic instruments as a whole class and in small groups. They also gain an understanding of basic rhythmic and theoretical concepts, as well as having plenty of opportunities to create their own music. These can be complemented by our extra-curricular Instrumental Lessons.

It is extremely satisfying to see our students enjoying their learning experience and working together to achieve the core ideals and objectives of the music program.
