Group 2 – Handbells
In Music, Group 2 are learning how to play the handbells.
To start the first session students were introduced to the different pitches of bells available and were given the opportunity to get used to playing/ringing the bells.
Students practiced playing short tunes following a colour coded sequence and made some interesting discoveries. Through time exploring the bells, students observed how to make the bells make no sound at all and how to quickly stop them from ringing.
In the second part of the lesson, Group 2 were feeling confident and choose to learn how to play Twinkle, Twinkle.
After a few practices, it sounded fabulous - with everyone concentrating and playing in time with each other. Click here to see a video of the students playing.
