Year 3 have been learning about the Reggae genre of music and in particular, we have been focusing on the work of Bob Marley. As a class, we have learnt to sing Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds” and it is definitely a Y3 favourite.
Now that we are confident singing the vocals to the song, we have started adding instruments into the mix, starting with the glockenspiel! Before learning how to play “Three Little Birds” on the glockenspiels, we looked at some different types of musical notes and what they mean. We have started to learn how to read notes on the treble clef using the acrostic “Every Good Boy Deserves Football” and remembering it’s “F-A-C-E in the space.”
The children had lots of fun playing the glockenspiel and especially enjoyed improvising to the song!
