Hello and welcome to the Music virtual learning page with Mrs Bryant-King. I will be posting weekly activities, worksheets and links to help you keep up the fantastic work that we do in music.

The best way to spread every day cheer is singing together for all to hear! I recommend that you sing at least 2 songs a day with your families. Put a favourite song into YouTube with lyrics, take turns to pick a song and have a sing along together. I guarantee that it will make you feel happy, and you never know, you may have some hidden talents at home! Home karaoke sessions are a great way to bring everyone together and share our favourite music.

 

Here’s our Grangetown Anthem sung by the choir for you to singalong with.

 

Below are some links to websites for you all to have a look at. There are fun games, instruments to discover and activities to complete. Enjoy!

   Mental Health Awareness Week.

Looking after our mental health is extremely important, especially in times like these. Listening to music can really help us to escape, give us time to relax and be more mindful.

Dancing to your favourite song is an excellent way to feel happy and exercise too- give it a try.

Below are some links to some 'mindful' pieces of music. They all have videos with them, but often closing your eyes really helps to escape and give yourself a few minutes of calm. If you have trouble falling asleep, these pieces can help you to drift off too. Enjoy.
