All About Halloween!

We’ve been having so much fun this month in Music, playing all sorts of Halloween games.

The Casa students have been practicing their locomotor movement by pretending to be bats, robots, and cats! Please see the photo below of the Year 2 students in their best cat, bat, or robot statue.

The Lower Elementary students have been learning about short and long sounds to the tune of ‘In The Hall of The Mountain King’ from Peer Gynt Suite. Please see the photo below of the Grade 2’s showing this movement through scarves.

The Upper Elementary students have all been hard at work practicing their recorder for the Holiday concert. We’ve also been learning how to sing in 2-part harmony.

The Middle Years students have begun their ‘Silent Movie’ project. As we’ve studied the Romantic, Classical, Baroque, and Medieval eras we learned that there was some amazing pieces written, which would easily be turned into a movie! They will be filming, acting, and putting it all together (in Windows Movie Maker) to create one neat video! (Please see the photo of the Middle Years Students learning about the ‘waltz’ from the Baroque era).

I look forward to November where we will all be hard at work practicing for the Holiday concert, and learning the concepts from each piece.
