Music – Basic Rhythms

Hello Primary 2!  

Before Easter I asked you to listen to ‘The Great Escape’ by Bernstein, and work out how many beats in a bar. I hope you all managed to count 4 beats in a bar?

Did you show anyone else at home how to conduct?

Thank you for sending photos of some of the instruments you have been making from recycled materials. There were a great variety of drums, shakers and even some cabasa, using plastic netting from fruit punnets and filled with buttons or shells and rocks! I was most impressed!

This week we are looking at rhythms. Using your percussion instrument, play along, following the beats of the bar of the Alligators and Cats song?

Good luck

Mrs Campbell
