This Term the Foundations are learning to sing ‘Advance Australia Fair’ in preparation for the school Assemblies.
We’ve been looking at the lyrics of the song and what they mean through a picture story book titled ‘Sing Australia’. Foundations will be given a copy of the lyrics to take home so that they can practise singing ‘Advance Australia Fair’ with their parents.
During term 1, Foundations will also learn a new song to perform at their first Assembly appearance. They’ll also experience different percussion instruments and learn what a music beat is.
The Year 1s and 2s will continue their music program consisting of: beat, rhythm, tempo and dynamics (loud and soft). They’ll play percussion instruments and learn to read music symbols. Both year levels will have opportunities to work collaboratively in groups while creating dance moves and singing to selected music.
Years 3 to 6 students will not have Performing Arts as a specialist subject until Semester 2 this year.
