Church of England Junior School

Year 4 Music Learning at home

Welcome to the Summer Term

This term we would normally be looking at Folk Music and learning to play the Melodean. We can't do that so we are going to start by looking into the world of FOLK MUSIC. 

Have a look at this list of activities and choose one (or more to do) 

1. Learn to play the spoons. Have a look at this video given by Jo who taught Mrs Malone to play the spoons, grab yourself a pair of spoons and have a go. CLICK HERE
