Matilda Social Distancing Music Video

 

It's finally finished! Sorry we could get all the videos to sync up and a couple of them freeze part way through but we thought you'd waited long enough!

It sounds awesome too!

 

We will keep tinkering away at it to see if we can sort out those final kinks.

 

Well done to everyone involved :)

Hello everyone, 

 

Hope you are all okay and enjoying whatever activities you are doing at home!

 

If you're looking for or needing something calm and relaxing to do then 'The Calm Zone' may help! Here you can find fun games, activities, breathing exercises and videos:

My favourite activity is the 'Stress Sock' (a bit like a stress ball but one made from an old sock!)  

Matilda Social Distancing Music Video

 

As I'm sure many of you are aware, the date of the cancelled Middle Years Performance is coming up. We are all devastated that we will not be able to perform Matilda but we didn't want the moment to go unmarked.

 

Many of you will have seen social distancing performances on social media platforms and we would like to attempt to make our own version of "When I grow up" with no promises on how it will come out!

 

If this is something your child would like to be involved in, please follow the instructions below. By submitting your child's video, you are giving us permission to use their voice and image in a video that will appear on the school website. 

 

We look forward to seeing and hearing your videos soon!

Tops tips for your video!

 

1. Listen to the backing track and practise singing along. There is a vocal guide track so you know when to begin singing. This will be removed when we edit the video.

2. When recording, it works best if you are listening to the backing track through headphones as then only your voice is picked up on the microphone. If this isn't possible, don't worry!

3. Make your video interesting for us to watch. You might want to use the actions we learned at school or make up your own dance!

 

How to submit your video entry

 

At the start of the backing track, you will hear 8 drum clicks. When you record your video, please clap in time with the 5th click. This will help us get the videos better synced when we are editing. 


Once you are happy with your recording, use wetransfer.com to send your file to jwat3247@st-nicolas.oxon.sch.uk This is a service which allows you to send larger files via email. All information is secure and messages sent are encrypted. More information can be found here: https://wetransfer.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/210092453-How-secure-is-your-platform-

Please can we have all video submissions by Friday 15th May.

Welcome to Year 3

(Class 7)!

We are a hard working class and love learning new things at school. This year, we have Mr Garnham teaching us and Mrs Steele, Mrs Collins and Mrs Bolton helping us with our learning. We are also lucky to be supported by other members of the wonderful St Nicolas staff team each week.

 

We enjoy violin and cello lessons every Tuesday and look forward to P.E. on a Wednesday afternoon.

 

This term our Topic is Gods and Mortals and we are learning about the Ancient Greeks. We will be looking at a variety of Greek myths from "The Anthology of Greek Myths."
