A full, exciting term in music lessons for Years 5 & 6 began with a project on Rock Music. We explored and defined the genre as the classes compared and sang some classic songs. After half term our attention moved to Jazz, with a particular focus on the saxophone family. Children also brought their own instruments into lessons and incorporated music technology as we all learnt about structure and improvisation in jazz. This video clip shows Year 5 meeting a theme in the first week before using it as a basis for improvising. We’ll develop the project further next term, but took a break to learn the songs they sang so well in our Christmas production.
