Hi everyone!
These are lovely well known tunes to start practising in the next week! You could even send a video of yourself playing your favourite tune to your teacher so that we can add it to the school DIGITAL BOOK! It would be great to see!
I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the time to play lots of music! Ms Maguire.

6th Class have been looking at the works of a different artist every week since we began our Google Classroom. One of our students was so inspired that she created her own versions of her favourite pieces. Can you guess which artists we’ve been looking at? I think she’s done a very good job experimenting with with the styles of different artists.

She also taught herself some origami skills over the Easter holidays. It’s great to see how we’re all keeping ourselves busy and learning during this time. Keep it up everyone!
