Our Music lessons are themed alongside our topic of Dinosaurs. We will build upon on the skills and knowledge in music each week. 


In today's session we will be learning how to take part in singing accurately following a melody. 


Task 1:


Today we are thinking about being musicians and singers. What do we need to be good musicians and singers?

Can you make a list of what we would need to be good musicians and singers? 

Possible answers could include ideas such as:

We need ears for listening, eyes for looking at lyrics, mouths for speaking and singing, arms for playing instruments, brains for thinking about what to do and say.




Task 2:

Can you research (with the help of an adult) the meaning of the following words...





Task 3:

Can you learn the lyrics to the dinosaur song and add actions to the song too? You could record your performance and send it to your class teacher on class dojo.


An extension task is below for an extra challenge too.
