We watched some music videos and listened to many songs to understand how the sounds, genres and outfits transformed the world of music during different decades. We discussed how music plays a very important role in the lives of people all around the world. We also reflected how songs make us feel different emotions and how we can express ourselves through singing and dance.
Each child had to choose one famous singer or band from the last 50 years. Secondly, they began researching about their artist or band and created a beautiful poster which they needed to present to the class. Lastly, they were to make a creative dance and/or singing performance. They could either perform live or create a music video. Both year 3 classes gathered to watch all premiere performances. Some of our special performances included hits from Michael Jackson, The Beatles, George Michael, Spice Girls, Taylor Swift and The Rolling Stones.
All teachers and students were amazed by the effort, creativity and talent of these performances.
