Goodbye April! How quickly is this year going? 10 weeks left in school (plus a half term holiday) and we will be saying goodbye for the summer. We've lots still to do!
School is a great place to be at the moment, there is a real buzz around the place and children are working incredibly hard. Teachers are incredibly proud, particularly with the writing children have produced over this last week! Please do make sure you follow us on Twitter to get regular updates and see celebrations of learning from across school.
This month has also seen the beginning of our Out of School Clubs revival; with football, running and dance clubs proving to be incredibly popular. If you would like further information please do speak to staff or, as always, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's great to see an influx of new members to the WCPS Beat the Street Facebook group! This initiative was incredibly popular 2 years ago and as the winners we will be taking part in the official launch! If you would like to join the group for updates please search for Beat the street 2021 Worsbrough Common Primary School.
This month has also seen the relaunch of our string orchestra and choir! As a group of staff we have also had some staff training to ensure our singing and music skills keep up with the talent we have across school!
As part of our coverage of the Music Curriculum we have been making sure we listen to a wide range of music with ‘Music of the Week’. The children are introduced to a piece of music and composer and learn 5 facts about them before actively listening to the music and pinpointing key features. It won’t be long before they are very knowledgeable about a wide range of musical genres!
This week we have been exploring Chopin's Nocturne in E Flat, played by Marten Altrov - Clarinet and Greta Jakobsonaite - Piano
These are the facts we have been learning:
5 facts about the composer/composition:
1. He was born in Poland but his Dad was French.
2. He died at the age of 39.
3. He was born in 1810.
4. His music was composed in the Romantic period
5. Chopin’s Nocturne in E flat major was composed when he was 20 and was originally written for piano.
