Hi all,

 https://we.tl/t-XBXy2O3LU0

Have fun learning and try teaching your parents!

  1. General warm up for both Mini and Junior. Including cardiovascular, isolation and stretches. (SEE VIDEOS)
  2. Challenges for all- 6 Step/ Wave/ Running Man/ Helicopter (SEE VIDEOS)
  3. 2 routines/ one beginner (James Brown- Get up Offa That Thing) one intermediate (Lady Gaga- Stupid Love) (SEE VIDEOS)
  4. Challenges for all:

     
  • Freestyle to your choice of music (can be anything!) Try and do the whole song without stopping. Thinking about different levels, pauses, direction, speed! If you can, film yourself and watch it back. This is a really interesting way of giving yourself feedback and to see what you liked, didn’t like, found difficult and what you enjoyed! Have fun creating!

 

  • Make up a mini routine 4 counts of 8 for Mini and 8 counts of 8 for Junior. Any style: Hip Hop, Popping, Locking, Breaking! Think outside the box and step outside your comfort zone!

 

I hope you enjoy these little videos and I can’t wait to see how you get on with the challenges.

 

Stay healthy and safe

Implementation of Creative Arts at Bedgrove Junior School

 

At Bedgrove Junior School we deliver a Creative Arts curriculum that is accessible to all, covering Music, Dance and Drama. We recoginse the importance of the wider curriculum and understand that children flourish with this. Teaching and learning at BJS strives to provide every child with the skills, knowledge and understanding required in order for them to achieve their full potential.  Every child has the opportunity to perform both in school and at local events, we believe that this provides children with key skills such as developing confidence and teamwork. By offering these subjects we can identify children with natural abilities and help to support them within Creative Arts, we also create opportunity for children to try something new and "Give it a Go".

Bedgrove Junior School has a thriving music department with many pupils learning a musical instrument from a team of visiting music teachers. We have two Choirs, a Wind Band, a String Orchestra, a Musical Theatre Squad, and several chamber ensembles. A number of our pupils take ABRSM or Trinity examinations and are highly successful.


 

All instruments are available for pupils to learn from year 3 onwards. These include:

Violin, Viola, Cello, Guitar, Drum Kit, Recorder, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Cornet, Trombone, Piano, Singing, Music Theory.

Picture 1

All pupils receive one classroom music lesson per week over three half terms and one singing assembly every week. During these lessons and assemblies, pupils learn about different genres of music; good listening and singing skills; staff notation; composition, improvisation and performance skills; and how to play an instrument.

Year 3 topics include: Singing Technique; R&B, Reggae & Music from different cultures; Performance.

Year 4 topics include: Whole Class Guitar; Mamma Mia; Rap & Gospel music; Composition.

Year 5 topics include: Rock, Ballad & Hip Hop music; Improvisation; Music Theory.

Year 6 topics include: Motown, Pop & Western Classical Music; Keyboard Skills; Performance.

Regular performances take place throughout the year, including an Annual Carol Service; Summer Concert; Young Voices at the O2 Arena; Honeycomb Festival at the Waterside Theatre; Christmas Choir performances at Marks & Spencer and Friars Square shopping centre to raise money for charity, and morning concerts in school during the Spring term. This summer, our choir has been invited to perform with the Aylesbury Symphony Orchestra at their family concert (pictures can be found on the sports, music and drama news page).

Research from the University of Oxford shows that regular singing releases endorphins and reduces anxiety. Research from the University of Vermont shows that learning music improves academic performance. Government figures for 2017-2018 show that only 17.6% of children under the age of 11 in the UK learn to play an instrument due to the cost of individual music lessons.

This year, all 480 pupils are undertaking a ground-breaking project: to prepare for an ABRSM grade 1 singing exam. Pupils will learn a range of songs including an unaccompanied traditional song, sight-singing techniques and the four different types of aural test. At the end of the project, all pupils will have the opportunity to take their grade 1 exam
Don't forget to provide your child with a bottle of water each day :-)
