Wow! The weeks are really moving by at break neck speed.
Year 11 = Well done! You've now all completed your course work. It's very important that you keep coming into school for music lessons so that we can ensure you're totally prepared for the Listening and Appraising exam on May 24th.
Year 10 = Pressure's on this term to complete all of your work for Unit 4 - Composing. Remember you need to complete an annotation and lead sheet as well as record your composition. Some of you have some excellent work in the making so keep working hard to ensure you get it organised and complete. All resources are uploaded onto Numu to help you with this.
Year 9 = We are into our final practical project of the year now, and for some of you it will be your final musical project in Sunnydale - so make it a good one. I'm impressed at the number of you who've elected to be songwriters and can't wait to hear your creations.
Year 8 = I'm really enjoying seeing your skills develop on the instrument carousel!! Well done you're really getting good now at playing the chord pattern D A Bm G. Remember once you've cracked it you can use it to play hundreds and hundreds of songs.
Year 7 = our #mfpilotproject2013 is really developing well. You've impressed me so much with your singing and technology skills and now that you're all starting to compose I'm looking forward to seeing new skills develop. You're making really sensible and imaginative use of your devices a apps which is great to see. Well done!! Can't wait to hear your Dr Who music!

We have an exciting week ahead this week. Year 7 are continuing work with the #mfpilotproject. We have shared some interesting apps and 7.4 claim the prize for being the first group to perform a piece of music using apps!! Well done it was great fun seeing it come together. We have our visit this week from Mrs Hannon from the Musical Futures team on Thursday - can't wait to show off what you're doing.
Year 8 will be finishing off Phantom of the Opera this week and getting prepared to move onto Folk Music.
Year 9 - it is this week that you can choose to perform should you so wish - next week is the deadline to perform your work. Some of you have great performances - hoping you may be brave enough to share on numu.
Year 10 - I've posted all the deadline dates for course work on your page - please try your absolute hardest to stick to them.
And last but not least year 11 - an extremely busy time. ALL course work needs to be completed and recorded before we break up for Easter. You are so so close now - keep working hard - you'll get there!!
