Today we had a fantastic day with Year 6 and Mr Clark. We decided that we wanted to write a new school song and spent the day working on this. First, we worked on learning about how musicians go about writing a song; we looked at different examples and then Mr Clark taught us about major and minor chords.
After playtime, we thought of lyrics to describe our school and looked at rhyming patterns.
Finally, Mr Clark worked over lunch time and composed the melody and we worked on verse 2 and the bridge. We are going to spend the next few weeks learning the song before we perform it for everyone at the end of the year!
