The boys in Year 2 have continued their learning based on the song Kerfunken Tune Set after performing a Dutch circle dance to the piece with their parents and grandparents during the Student Lead Conferences. The boys discovered the history of the Irish Bronze Age Horn and found that it has similar sounds and playing techniques to that of the didgeridoo. They were able to recognize the A and B melodies of each of the three jigs and reels played in the tune set confirming that each tune is written in binary form. The boys will now begin to choreograph their own circle dances and will have fun negotiating the changes from jig to reel and back again with their new steps!
