What excited you most about Music Technology?

Year 6 News

Brand new for this week, was the start of Music Technology! With a specialist from Sutton Music Service, Mr Radley, the children have begun exploring an aspect of Music which is new to Dorchester but very much links with Music-teaching at high school. This is part of a new and exciting venture for the school and the children were very excited for their subsequent lessons on Tuesdays. In Geography this week, we have been looking at the different economic situations within Brazil and comparing images of the types of housing. It proved to be a fascinating discussion where the children were surprised to find out how close together some of them were. In Maths, we have been focusing on the difference between common factors and common multiples, as well as prime numbers. Some of our warm-ups at the start of Maths lessons have involved revising Year 5 knowledge about short division before we launch into long division next week. In Science, we have been considering how different species adapt to live in certain environments.
