Team LL, AF and LG have been lucky enough to be engaging in workshops organised by Barnsley Youth Choir and led by Luke Mathers. During the workshops we have explored different genres of music and dynamics, control, rhythm and pitch. Children have had the opportunity to learn and perform a range of songs. Most importantly it has been lots of fun.
Since returning to school in September following partial school closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been working hard to identify the areas of learning individual pupils may need to catch up on. As always, we are making core subjects the priority - particularly the basic skills of numeracy and literacy. However here at Wombwell Park Street, we are passionate about our broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum offer and feel now more than ever pupils need the opportunity to engage in a wide range of learning opportunities. Children will be accessing the full range of curriculum subjects this year. If you wish to discuss our current curriculum provision further do not hesitate to contact school and Mrs Longden Deputy Head can provide further information. Should you need any further information relating to provision in Music, Miss Taylor and Mrs Longden will be happy to answer any questions.
We are forever sharing learning resources on our Twitter page @WombwellParkSt

PE & Music
This term we have been exploring dance from countries in the UK. We began by watching videos of Irish dancing and listened to the traditional music. We thought carefully about our posture and position of our arms when dancing. We created a short routine to share with others. We have also watched videos of Scottish dance and listened to traditional music. We compared this to Irish dance and music and discussed the similarities and differences.
