Year 6

Autumn 2: Into the Trenches

Learn the history of music hall music and perform ‘Pack up your Troubles’ in chorus.

This term, as part of their topic on World War 1, Year 6 explored the background and importance of music hall in the early 20th century. We appraised a variety of songs including "it's a Long Way to Tipperary" and "Keep the Home Fires Burning." We learned the lyrics to "Pack up your Troubles! and sang in chorus. 

We tried to control our breathing, posture and sound projection, singing with expression. We know now that mood can be changed with music and lyrics to certain songs.  Do you like it?
