Year 6 Music Work
We started this year’s music with two exciting workshops with a Stomp artist called Adele Thompson. In these sessions, Adele inspired us with her passion for performing and provided us with some great rhythmical material for us to use and adapt to create our own Stomp pieces in our music lessons. Did you know there are at least 1831 different types of cheeses in the world? We have been using the names of cheeses to help us create interesting rhythms.
Following on from our Stomp workshops with Adele Thompson, the Year 6 pupils have written a plan outlining a Stomp piece they would like to perform. They have thought about the structure of the piece as well as the orchestration and the humour. From these plans, we have chosen some of the best and are now working in groups to develop these with a performance in mind. Here are two examples of the writing:
Year 6 were very fortunate to have two workshops with dance and stomp artist Adele Thompson. We all learnt a lot about passion and energy in performance and now have a wealth of rhythms at our fingertips ready to start choreographing our own stomp pieces. Here are some photos of us all in action:
