Kindergarten

Kindergarten Music – Term 1

During the first term, students will begin Year One of a new play-based music program called “Musicplay”. This program is based on the Kodaly and Orff methods, and contains many different styles of songs – action songs, singalong songs, folk songs, multicultural songs, game songs and holiday songs, which will really motivate and excite the students. These songs will help introduce and develop in-tune singing and performance of the beat. Students will also be preparing for our Christmas musical by singing various songs of greater difficulty.

It is expected that the students will be able to:

  • sing short melodies;
  • respond to the beat in music;
  • participate in a variety of classroom songs and singing games;
  • participate in musical activities from a variety of different contexts;
  • demonstrate conscientious effort in classroom activities;
  • demonstrate appropriate performance skills; and demonstrate respect for the contributions of others

Kindergarten Music – Term 2

During the second term, the students will work on developing their dramatic and vocal abilities
during our Christmas Musical preparations. They will resume their new “Musicplay” curriculum, using varied songs and games to enhance their musical learning. This term, students will also be encouraged to learn and perform solfa hand signs, create sound effects, and differentiate between high/low, fast/slow, and loud/soft, while working on keeping a steady beat.

It is expected that the students will be able to:

  • sing short melodies;
  • respond to the beat in music;
  • participate in a variety of classroom songs and singing games;
  • participate in musical activities from a variety of different contexts;
  • demonstrate conscientious effort in classroom activities;
  • demonstrate appropriate performance skills; and
  • demonstrate respect for the contributions of others.

Kindergarten Music – Term 3

During the final term, students will continue to develop singing and listening skills through our “Musicplay” curriculum. They will perform rhythmic patterns using rhythm instruments, and continue to develop their abilities to differentiate between high/low, fast/slow, and loud/soft in the music, using movement and solfa hand signs. This term will see the students reading simple rhythms, creating instruments, and participating in themed music from around the world. Themes will include Easter, Rain, Mother’s Day, Gardens, The Ocean, and Spanish Music.

It is expected that the students will be able to:

  • sing short melodies;
  • respond to the beat in music;
  • participate in a variety of classroom songs and singing games;
