Year 2


In Term 3, students are busily practising their song and dance routine for Beauty and the Beast. 

We are creating small group dances using the Jazz Music instrumental piece: Birdland.
Below is the version by Maynard Ferguson. Enjoy!

We are also exploring movement and dance and have been creating movement sequences based on the theme of Winter.
Below is the version of The Snow is Dancing by Claude Debussy that we have been using.

In Term 2 Year Two students are learning to read music and play tunes on the glockenspiel.
We have been exploring musical concepts on the SFS Kids website. SFS stands for San Francisco Symphony.

In 2017, Term 1, Year Two students are learning about orchestral instruments.
We have enjoyed playing the interactive Magic Flute Orchestra Game which is helping us to recognise many of the instruments by sight and sound.

Click on the link below to access the Orchestra Game from the Magic Flute but remember, you will need to download it first before you can play it.

We are also learning  to sing partner songs.

Year 2 have had a successful semester in Performing Arts. They have been learning a variety of African songs focusing on 'Call and Response' vocal patterns and have been creating their own rhythms. During Term 2, preparation has started in earnest  to learn our songs for The Lion King Musical and also the dance steps. 
2N and 2S students will be singing Circle of Life and the Stampede. All students will be singing during the finale and Bows (or curtain calls) at the concert. 
    
 


  

 2W are singing 'Grasslands Chant' for The Lion King.
Here is one of the videos of them singing the 3 different parts.
