Grade 3: What Matters to Us!

Our Grade 3 Musical, ‘What Matters to Us,’ is quickly approaching! Students have been working hard to prepare a musical piece that highlights something we have learned this year. The musical will be on Thursday, May 16th. There will be two performances - one for the school at 2:00pm, and again at 6:30pm. All families are welcome to attend either performance. Please email your student’s teacher if your student is unable to attend the evening performance.

Grade 3's - if you are practicing at home then please sing along! When I Grow Up


Grade 3: Reading Music

Grade 3's are preparing to start playing recorders by learning to read music! We have discussed the staff, and how each line and space on the staff has its own pitch. We know the pitch by looking at the clef - if it is a treble clef (or G clef) it is high pitch, if it is a bass clef it is low pitch. Each pitch is given its own letter from the musical alphabet. Ask your student how many letters are in the musical alphabet!

Test your knowledge of the treble staff by playing the game here!

September!

Wow! What a busy month! This month students were coming back to school and starting to learn songs and ideas that will be coming up throughout the year. The first song all students learned was O Canada. There was an important phrase change in February that all students became aware of. Ask your student which words changed!

Grade 1 and 2: We were focusing on finding and following a beat (or 'pulse'), and how the beat can change! Students located the pulse in their own bodies and then found it in different songs. Students then practiced playing a beat in various body percussion, using their feet and in their hands. Some of the favourite songs have included 'Fred the Moose', 'Princess Pat', 'Mama Tawga' and 'Hello Everybody'. Students will be challenged to find and follow a beat in a variety of ways through the year, especially as we start preparing for the K-2 Winter Concert!

Grade 3: We were focused on finding and following a beat in the song 'Mama Tawga', as well as identifying different song forms. Some of these song forms included repeating songs and rounds. Students sang nonsense songs and songs in other languages, as well as being challenged to sing a repeating song with actions while increasing the tempo. Some favourite songs included 'Mama Tawga', 'Mama Llama' and 'Bim Bum'. Grade 3's are also beginning to prepare for their Remembrance Day performance which will include many of the elements practiced so far!
