P4 Paper group had lots of fun creating their own music today.
Following on from their exploration of Carnival of the Animals pupils were to choose an animal and then create music using percussion instruments. The audience then had to guess which animals they were describing.
Videos of the performances will hopefully be uploaded soon.
During our first lesson in music many weeks ago some pupils felt a little unsure and nervous about the idea of learning music. However they showed great enjoyment and had a sense of achievement as they learned how to play some new instruments and performed in front of an audience. Well done!

P4 have been experiencing the wonderful world of the orchestra and classical music.
They have been learning the instrument families and some of the individual instruments.
This week’s classical music was Carnival of the Animals – pupils listened to some of the pieces and had to guess which animal it was based on by using clues in the music. As time went on pupils were able to describe the rhythm, pitch and volume of the music in relation to animals.
P4 pupils have been learning the difference between having a Growth Mindset and a Fixed Mindset. We have learned the importance of the word “Yet”. We now say “I can’t do it yet,” instead of just giving up.
We tried out some challenges during Health and Wellbeing. We had to stay determined and try again.
We played ‘Beat the Buzzer’. It was so tricky but we had fun.
We worked hard to draw and write with the hand we least use.
We became all tangled during Twister.
We had to have determination and resilience as we built a cup tower.
Some of us made a new pathway and can now tie shoe laces.
Finally, we tried to answer as many questions as possible in one minute in the game ‘Hit the Button’.
Well done to everyone!!
