In Year 1, the children learnt about musical notes, how to write them down correctly and how many counts to play them for. They learnt that there are whole notes, half notes and quarter notes, which are held for 4, 2 and 1 count.
The children each had a go at singing and played the musical note ‘d’ on the glockenspiel. They held the note for 4 counts (a whole note). They worked with their leaning partners, who clapped the count for them as they played it.
