Both Year 5 classes are continuing with their weekly treble recorder sessions with Danni. A brief warm up starts each lesson. The pupils are given the responsibility to lead their friends through a copycat routine.
Our recorder sessions are working towards an end of term concert for parents and carers. One of the songs that we will play is Thunderstorm. This requires the use of the notes B, D, C, A and E.
Danni explained that this can be tricky as notes such as A require a warm air technique with some slow breathing. We are practicing changing between the different styles of notes.
Some of the Year 5 pupils also attend the Recorder Club that Danni leads at lunchtimes. They will play a different version of Thunderstorm during the concert to add in some musical variety.
