The Heart of Camberwell

With open hearts and hands
We welcome one and all
From all across the lands
United we stand tall

With kindness and respect
We journey here as one
Avec la gentillesse
Nous apprenons ensemble

With open hearts and minds
We learn and share and play
La découverte de soi
En Anglais et Français

Nous chantons sous une voix
On marche main dans la main
Nous voyageons ensemble
On partage un chemin

The spirit of our school
The chiming of our bell
We’ll carry all our lives
The heart of Camberwell

Do this a few times. Then the students can do a draft invitation for the open evening.

“Dear Mum/Dad/Nanna/Special Person,
You are invited to our “Around tbe Word in 80 Tales” Open Evening. It is on Tuesday May 23 at 6pm. I will be performing with my class in the senior campus hall at 6:30pm. I hope you can make it! Love, ___”.

Students- you need to give these to the teacher!!! Don’t take them home yet!!

______________________________________________
FOUNDATION LESSON:

Click here to see the different songs Foundation have learnt. Practise these.

The children will need some time working independently, so have them draw a picture of their favourite song at the tables.

Then you can do some dancing on GoNoodle or Just Dance on Youtube.
_______________________________________________

GRADE 2 LESSON: Resources are on the bookshelf near the pencils and scissors etc.

 

Learning Intention:

Today we are learning to read music on the Treble Staff

 

Success Criteria:

I can recognise and name the notes on the lines and in the spaces.

 

I can draw a note in the correct space or on the correct line.

Tuning in/ Explanation/ Presentation:

 

Discuss the musical alphabet A-G, stressing that it does not continue to H & beyond.

 

Teach the children the mnemonics “Every Good Boy Does Fine” and “FACE in the Space”.

Watch the video:

Every Good Boy Does Fine:

Show how the noteheads always fit exactly in a space or on a line.

Show how one can count up or back through the musical alphabet (A-G) on the lines and spaces to find a particular letter name.

WHOLE GROUP:

Lead by the teacher, children practise drawing notes on the staff in the lines and spaces. They practise naming the notes with the correct name and write the letter under each note.

 

INDIVIDUAL WORK:

Children work on the task sheet “Identifying Notes”. They have to write the correct letter name for the notes displayed.

 

Differentiation: More advanced students can draw the notes for the letter names given.

 

PARTNER WORK:

Children work in pairs with a mini whiteboard and marker each. They take it in turns to draw a note for their partner, who must write the correct letter name beneath it.

Thanks and have a great day!

And the lyrics!

Count on Me

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea,
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see,
I’ll be the light to guide you

 

Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

 

You can count on me like one two three, I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Whoa, whoa, Oh, oh Yeah, yeah

 

If you tossin’ and you’re turnin’ and you just can’t fall asleep
I’ll sing a song, Beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Everyday I will, Remind you, Ooh

Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

 

You can count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Oh, oh, Yeah, yeah

 

You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry
I’ll never let go
Never say goodbye
You know you can

Count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
And you’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Oh, oh
You can count on me ’cause I can count on you

 

 

See you all on Monday at 9.50am in the reading room!
Merci

Mme Davies 🙂

Senior Choir Fête Songs…PLEASE PRACTICE!!!!

Hello Senior choir, great work today! We just need to make sure that our On ecrit… words are up to scratch please! Here they are again!

On écrit sur les murs

 

On écrit sur les murs le nom de ceux qu’on aime

Des messages pour les jours à venir

On écrit sur les murs à l’encre de nos veines

On dessine tout ce que l’on voudrait dire

Partout autour de nous,

Y’a des signes d’espoir dans les regards

Donnons leurs écrits car dans la nuit

Tout s’efface… même leur trace

 

On écrit sur les murs le nom de ceux qu’on aime

Des messages pour les jours à venir

On écrit sur les murs à l’encre de nos veines

On dessine tout ce que l’on voudrait dire

 

On écrit sur les murs la force de nos rêves

Nos espoirs en forme de graffiti

On écrit sur les murs pour que l’amour se lève

Un beau jour sur le monde endormi

Des mots seulement gravés pour ne pas oublier pour tout changer

Mélangeons demain dans un refrain nos visages, métissages

 

On écrit sur les murs le nom de ceux qu’on aime

Des messages pour les jours à venir

On écrit sur les murs à l’encre de nos veines

On dessine tout ce que l’on voudrait dire

On écrit sur les murs la force de nos rêves

Nos espoirs en forme de graffiti

 

On écrit sur les murs pour que l’amour se lève

Un beau jour sur le monde endormi

On écrit sur les murs le nom de ceux qu’on aime

Des messages pour les jours à venir

On écrit sur les murs à l’encre de nos veines

On dessine tout ce que l’on voudrait dire

 

On écrit sur les murs le nom de ceux qu’on aime

Des messages pour les jours à venir

On écrit sur les murs à l’encre de nos veines

On dessine tout ce que l’on voudrait dire

 

On écrit sur les murs la force de nos rêves

Nos espoirs en forme de graffiti

On écrit sur les murs pour que l’amour se lève

Un beau jour sur le monde endormi…

Un beau jour sur le monde endormi…
