  • Can't Stop The Feeling: Tommy will perform this hit Justin Timberlake song from the movie 'Trolls'!

Band Leader Paul will cover:

  • The Rhythm Clock: Using the musical notes that we have been learning about over the past few weeks, KS2 try to spot the crotchets, quavers, minims and semibreves with Paul's very own rhythm clock.
  • Family Focus: We will learn all about the percussion family, what the instruments have in common and take a closer look at a few of them.
  • Musical Word of the Week: This week we learn all about crescendo. KS2 will discover what it means for the dynamics of a song to crescendo.
  • Rock History: We're heading back to the 1970's to learn about the legendary band Fleetwood Mac and Paul will finish by playing some of their greatest hits.
