Music with Jo

Piano - quiet  p
We have started by learning about dynamics.  In music the word dynamics refers to the volume of the sound. The two basic dynamics indications in music are piano, meaning “softly” or “quietly” and Forte, meaning “strong” or “loudly”. 

Forte - Loud   f

We learnt about reading music and following the beat.

Jo showed us some different kinds of instruments. We looked at the Oboe and the Clarinet.

We are the Same and Different.

We have started the Kia Kaha programme.
The Kia Kaha programme enables students to develop strategies for respectful relationships where bullying behaviours are not tolerated.

We have been learning about how we are the same and how we are different from each other.

In groups we painted one person from the group. We discuss all the things that were the same and the things that were different about our class.

Our Second Fire Wise Visit

We learnt about what to do if we find matches or a lighter. We will always take it to an adult to put up high in a safe place. 

We read a story about what to do in a fire.

Get down, Get low, Get out!
Meet outside in a safe place, like the letterbox.

We practiced getting down, getting low and getting out.

We went under the smoke and outside to a safe place.
Thank you again to the Tawa Volunteer Fire Brigade!
