8 Review last week's module, or any of the songs you like!

Repetition is one of the ways that we learn something well.

Children improve singing on pitch, learn the lyrics and melody better with each repetition.

Children will develop their musicality if you sing, move, play more often!

Keep a list of the songs and activities that you like.

Your teacher may ask you to email one of the suggested assessments

10 Music is literacy

Parents, Teachers and Administration:
