Year 5 ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’……

The ‘stand out’ learning this week, as well as some great descriptive writing for settings in English, has to be our Music!

Our music, this half term, is based around the ‘Bon Jovi’ song ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ and we are absolutely rocking out in class!

We have some GREAT singers in the class and some very musical children. The children now know the lyrics and can play instruments in the guitar solo section.  We are continuing to work on our performance of the song and have added a special twist on the song for Harvest.

We will keep you updated on this and add a video of the performance at the end of half term 🙂

“Woahhhhhhh livin on a prayerrrrrrr”


Year 5- Planet themed music

This half term, we have been looking at the compositions of Gustav Holst and used this to inspire our own work. We have studied his work on the planets and from that created our own musical composition to accompany our made up planet. Today some of us performed our final piece. We have considered what mood we want to portray and how we can change the tempo, dynamics and texture of the piece in order to convey this.

Check back in with us next week to see us all perform.
