RHYTHM READING Warm Up
Read the rhythm using Ta, TeTe and Rest.
The clip is a little behind so make sure you follow the rhythm yourself by reading it and saying it along to the music and don't rely on the pictures flashing on in time.
Practise singing in two parts.
Start by singing along with the lyrics on the clip
Switch it up and sing the other part, so when lyrics say 'My paddle...' you sing 'Land of the silver birch...' and vice versa
Play the rhythm as you sing.
Tap on a table/chair/drum the rhythm ostinato that we learnt last week. Dip Dip and Swing.
Use both hands and play the rhythm like this

PLAY A GAME
You will need 4 different coloured pieces of paper - red, yellow green and blue.
Watch the clip below and copy the patterns.
HOW to PLAY AT HOME
1. Choose a piece of music that you like that has a steady beat. Check that you can count 8 easily along with the music.
2. Make sure each player has the same coloured papers in front of them.
3. Leader pats a rhythm (within the count of 8) and the other players copy.
Want to make it competitive?
Players go out when they get the rhythm wrong. The person left in at the end is the new Leader for the next round.
Playing by yourself
Play each rhythm twice before you move onto a new one.
