An Inquiry into how Music defines us
Grade 5/6 has been exploring the concept of identity in our theme "Who We Are". One aspect that we looked into was Music as Identity.
Students were asked to reflect on the role of music in their life.
They should start to answer the “big questions”:
- Why do you love this music?
- What do you think your musical choices say about you?
- What do you hope it says about you?
Guest Speaker - Husandeep Singh Bajaj
Husandeep Singh Bajaj (Jagnoor's brother) was invited to share his personal journey as a song writer and performer. He talked to us about his musical inspiration and how he comes up with ideas when song writing. Check out his first single released on Itunes.
Using blogger.com, students were taught to create their personal music blogs. They were given the following brief :
Blog Post 1 : Introduce yourself and the purpose of the blog.
Blog Post 2 : Pick a Musical Genre you would like to focus on and research it. Write a blog post with citations.
Blog Post 3 : Pick 3-4 pieces of Music from your chosen genre and tell us why you feel that these pieces represent you.

We learned to embed pictures, links and videos into our blogs. We will continue to build on our ICT skills and apply them in all areas of our learning!
