At Haslam Park, we love to be musical. We currently use the ‘Voice Foundation’ to teach music through. This is supplemented with children taking weekly instrument lessons, which are provided by Bolton Music Services and also weekly ‘singing assemblies’. Look below at some of the musical things that are going on at Haslam Park.
At Haslam Park, we are fortune to have music teachers come in each week from Bolton Schools’ Music Services. Year 4 Erdele Class and a few year 6 pupils are learning to play brass instruments. Have a look at this in action below.
Learning from home
even though we had to stay at home during January and February, this didn’t stop us from continuing our love of learning for music. Instead, we took our learning online via Zoom. We were extremely fortunate that Bolton Schools’ Music Services provided us with weekly lessons as well as 1:1 instrument tuition. Have a look below at some of the fabulous learning that we took part in.
BBC Philharmonic Zoom
This week, we have been extremely fortunate to have a Zoom call with a member of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. We spoke to a member of the orchestra- Lily Whitehurst- who plays the violin. We got to listen to her play and then she answered some of of questions.
Carols around the Christmas Tree
This afternoon, we had carols around the Christmas tree. We sang a variety of Christmas songs to celebrate
The Mayor's of Bolton Christmas Concert
The whole school attended The Mayor’s of Bolton Christmas Concert at Victoria Hall. The children made their own instruments beforehand and they learnt some Christmas song- Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, The 12 Days of Christmas and a jingle Bells. We had so much fun singing along to the songs and playing our instruments. The children got to listen to a live orchestra and learnt about the different types of instruments played in an orchestra- woodwind, brass, percussion and string. They also listened to the Bolton Youth Choir sing.
Each week at Haslam Park Primary School, Miss Fedtschyschak leads a singing assembly with KS1 and KS2. The songs we learn and sing changes depending on the time of year.
