Talent Show!

posted 2 Jul 2020, 12:27 by Louise Sutton

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry things have been a bit quiet here, Miss Galloway and myself have been really busy with the Y6 children but we have still been setting your activities for you to do. Today we did some virtual singing, and it was great! All three Y6 bubbles connected in virtually and enjoyed singing together, so it got me thinking about your performing arts task over the next two weeks. It was so great just to sing, to Mr Campbell playing his guitar so we wondered whether we should have a talent show? Over the next two weeks we challenge you to think about what your act would be for Sandringham's Got Talent. 

Practise it, video it and then send it in to arts@sandringham.school 

We will then judge your acts and hopefully we will have a KS1 winner, LKS2 winner, and an UKS2 winner! 

The closing date for your entry will be Wednesday 15th July at 12 noon.

Have fun, we can't wait to see what you come up with!

Mrs Sutton & Miss Galloway.

SIng Out Challenge

posted 18 Jun 2020, 12:12 by Louise Sutton   [ updated 18 Jun 2020, 12:15 ]

We should have been taking part in the Music Education Hub Singout event at The Dome yesterday and today. Alas that's obviously not to be so instead a special music challenge based around one of the songs has been set- 

To celebrate Sing Out this year, Core Artist Janet has created a special music challenge for you to try at home. Below you’ll find an introduction to the challenge from Janet, teaching you the lyrics to ‘Sing Out’. Core Artist Charlotte has also created some fantastic dance moves to go along with the song, which you can learn from the videos below! There are some resources to help you in the performing arts section of the website, including a lyric sheet, a pack of creative activities and the track for you to sing along with.

When you have learned the song and dance moves, we would like you to film yourself singing the ‘Sing, sing, sing out’ song and send in your film for us to make it part of a Sing Out Virtual Choir! You can find some helpful tips on how to create your film, and information on how to send it to us in the Sing Out Music Challenge resource at the top of this page. We can’t wait to see your films!

A huge shout out to Rose. She had a virtual violin lesson today, and it was so lovely to hear how much she has progressed since lock down and listen to her play. Don't forget virtual lessons are on offer for violin, clarinet, and recorder so if you're interested email me and we can get this set up! 

You will also find the clarinet, recorder and sing along's in the performing arts folder, so why not head over there and check it out!

A shout out to Callum, Imogen and Annabelle who all took part in the Young Voices singing at home mass choir event! They all look really proud holding their certificates! Did anyone else take part?

Callum has also done a great job keeping up with his performing arts home learning and is quite a pro at key signatures! It's really not easy but he will find it really useful for his violin playing, so a huge well done Callum! 

Play/ Sing Alongs

posted 5 Jun 2020, 04:26 by Louise Sutton   [ updated 5 Jun 2020, 04:27 ]

If you check the performing arts folder you will see we have added:

* clarinet play along - Star Wars
* recorder play along - Ode to Joy
* Sing along - Beauty & Beast

I have tried the sing along and its a good challenging one to get your teeth into! There is no melody line at all in the instrumental track, so have a go - don't give up, it's perfect for when no one is listening, then remember to show it off when you can do it! I have included the sheet music, as a great singing skill is to be able to sing from the sheet music - it also helps whilst learning to sing it with the instrumental track, as you can follow the piano part and try and work out where to come in or where you will get your note from!

Have fun!

Calling all our Singers!

So this morning I decided to have a music morning, what are you doing? Whilst making my recorder play along and recording my clarinet lessons I had this great idea that I would create some sing-alongs! When I took on my role at Sandringham as the music teacher, I realised I needed to start singing again, and despite achieving my grade 5 a few years ago - I suddenly realised how out of tune, and well to tell you the truth, how 'bad' I was!!!! Fortunately it's like riding a bike, and your ear and vocal chords soon adapt, although I'm not sure I'll get back to the standard I was - I used to also enjoy singing for the Doncaster Choral Society too. Anyway there are some really amazing singers at Sandringham and in this time away from our lessons and choir I needed to get you singing again so that you don't lose the muscles you've developed in your vocal chords. Have fun! Let me know what you think.

Keep an eye out you will find them on the performing arts page. I will provide the vocal track, the music and then an accompaniment. Please keep singing!

Apology but Wow!

Firstly, I must apologise to all the grown-ups for all the performing arts activities I'm setting, which means you have to get involved, whether that be dancing, singing, acting or being the camera woman/man! 

It's one of those sorry but not sorry! I am absolutely loving it! My morning was brightened instantly when I received an email from Annabelle and Olivia... they have put on a Friday night show and better still to one of my favourite bands: Abba.

Annabelle was the lead vocal, with Olivia being the lead dancer and oh my have those girls got voice and moves! It was absolutely fantastic. The passion they demonstrated through the whole number was exemplary,  so I'm interested to know dad's and grandad's thoughts. Was that a 'yawn' dad? 

Fantastic girls. I can see a place for you on the stage!

Thank you for a great start to my week. Keep them coming.

Jonatan has done such an amazing job. He has combined his maths skills, science skills, music skills and DT skills to make an amazing instrument! He used his guitar as his stimulus. He sent me a video playing on it, which actually works and can even be tuned!! I am really excited to see it when we get back to school. Well done for taking part in the performing arts activities. It makes me super happy!

You can see Jonatan also playing a famous tune on his rhoomus… I actually thought he was playing it on his guitar at first. It's just amazing!

I thought we might have a go at name that tune, it is a famous classical piece. Email me your answers!  I couldn't help humming along!

Well I had a lovely surprise to wake up to this morning, when I checked my emails because Olivia has completed the performing arts task using the track Flight of the Bumblebee and has made it really effective by doing the garden, being able collect pollen from real flowers! What really made me smile is she got her sister Annabelle to join in! Look at how much they had, it will make you smile! 

Anabelle has also sent me a video of her trying the salsa step and even got her mum to join in! I loved that she dressed for the occasion and wore perfect shoes! This really made me smile. 

Well done girls - look out for the dance related activity.
