Music at Home - Week 10
During times of difficulty we often turn to music in its many varied forms to help us through. Whether it's music to listen to which cheers us up and lifts our mood, music that makes us cry, music that makes us want to dance and sing, or just as a distraction from everything around us; now more than ever music has the power to help you and your child to soldier on....so ....here are some suggested activities to help!
Each week you will receive:
- Song of the week - warmups and a new song to learn
- Challenge of the week - a simple game or idea for your children to have a go at
- Signposts - a guide to other resources you might enjoy!
So here we go with our last one of this term, Week 10...
Song of the Week - Suitable for the Whole Family
A true British Summer involves...rain? This week's song embraces the rain with a piece that gets you moving using body percussion and singing too! It is also an opportunity to get the whole family involved as there are 3 parts for you to learn and put together. KS1 try ‘Splish Splash’, KS2 sing ‘I don’t care’ and KS3 try that body percussion to keep everyone together. Click here to have a go, we would love to see your family efforts over the Summer, tag us on Facebook or Twitter at @sheffmusichub
