Year 3

Happy New Year everyone!

Here are some things to keep you busy musically while we're at home.

 

This Week - 25th January

Did you do last week's work? If not, please do it now! (click here)

This is another samba break. We call it the 'Eights Break':

The idea is to count in your head while clapping or playing just on the  1 s

One two three four five six seven eight

One two three four five six seven eight

One two three four One two three four

One two One two  One One One One

1. Just say it to start with, like this:
2. Say it again and clap on all the Ones like this:
3. Clap again, but don't count aloud, just count in your head:
4. Play it on a DIY instrument (eg frying pan!):
Can you play it in time without even counting in your head?

Here's another way to think about it:

And another song to learn...

Last Week - 18th January

 
Did you try Tom's DIY Samba ?
This is what happened when I did...
Find a DIY agogo. Nothing breakable or too valuable! Then try this:
Here's another song we learnt last year. 

Can you work out what's happening? Pick a part and sing along

 
The 'Spider Mouse' samba break.
Say it
Clap it
Try being the leader too!
Can you teach it to someone else in your family?

You probably haven't got any Samba kit at home!

Here's an idea from Tom for making your own.
Turn your family into a Samba Band!

 
I'm going to have a go myself. I'll let you know how I got on next week!

Singing

 

Here are two songs we started singing last year.

'Furrem be me heen' and 'Mary Mac'

Choose which singer you want to sing along with!
Lots more songs to listen to and learn here
Have you watched the Christmas song videos yet?
They're here
Great work everyone!
