Music

If you have a logon for Charanga, the next steps of ‘Let Your Spirit Fly’ are now available for you to access. It is great for me to see how many of you are earning coins on these activities!

At school, in music assembly with Miss Harvey and Steve, you have been learning to sing and sign a track called ‘Refuge’. I have attached the resources to this page so you can have a go at home. You can sing and sign together if you have older and/or younger siblings at Wicklewood and if not you can try to teach other members of your family.
