Billinge House children celebrate Music
This morning, Mrs Williams showcased some of the work that children have been doing in their weekly music lessons at Billinge House.
Reception children performed ”˜Bransle de chevaux’ a 16th century French dance. They kept the beat with three different percussion instruments and showed a circle dance with the mini-parachute.
Year 1 entertained us by performing a five verse animal song ”˜I once saw an elephant’ with funny lyrics and actions.
Year 2 began with ”˜Mi Caballo Blanco’, a Chilean folk song, accompanied by a 4 note chime bar pattern and a rhythm played on the claves. They ended with a beautiful rendition of ”˜Let’s go fly a kite’ from Mary Poppins.
It was a lovely way to begin the week by sharing the children’s achievements with Mrs Croston, Richmond Bear, Mrs Bolton, the teachers and children in different classes.
