Coming Soon, Home Learning Music Resource (Charanga YUMU)

Hello children and grown-ups,


I hope you are all making the most of the lovely weather we are having, as well as doing a little bit of fun learning when you can.


A simple activity that I love to do is to just sit by an open window, or out in my garden and just be very quiet and listen for one minute.  It’s surprising how many things you can hear.  Have a go… as I write I can hear my son sweeping the patio, the chicks in my garden, the neighbour’s children playing on their swing and a big bumble bee buzzing by…


We are going to be rolling out access to our online music resource called Charanga, Yumu.  Each child does need an individual login and password which I am currently setting up ready to be sent out.  I am starting with Hedgehogs Class in Year 1. If you are signed up to the school app you will receive a message with your login details in the next week or so, followed by the rest of Year 1, 2 and then Reception.


Years 1 & 2 will have access to a unit called ‘Friendship Song’.  There is a lovely song to learn at home. I am really looking forward to then singing it all together when we return to school.  There are a range of songs to listen to with activities to help focus the children’s listening, E.g.  How the music makes them feel and the instruments they can hear. One of our favourite songs we sing in school is Bruno Mars’ Count on Me and that is on there for them to sing along to.  Reception have a unit called 'Big Funk Bear' to look forward to.


Enjoy and keep safe.
