Remember, your first job everyday is to send a 'Good Morning'  message to your class teacher on I Am Learning by 10 am. Remember to include your scores from yesterday's quizzes. 

 

If you run out of space in any exercise books (orange Maths or yellow English book), please ask an adult to contact the office to arrange to pick up a new one.

If you have any issues, before contacting your class teacher, please check the user guides and instructions which are on your distance learning page under 'Oak National Academy resources'.

In the 1970s, jazz become increasingly influenced by Latin jazz, combining rhythms from African and Latin American countries, often played on instruments such as conga, tibale, guiro and claves, with jazz and classical harmonies played on typical jazz instruments (piano, double bass, etc.). Artists such as Chick Corea, John McLoughlin and Al Di Meola increasingly influenced the genre with jazz fusion.

Find the pulse of the music

Whilst listening to the music, think about these questions:

  1. Do you like the tune? Why/why not?
  2. What instruments can you see/hear? (research this if unsure)
  3. What emotions do you feel when you hear the song? E.g. sad, happy
  4. What can you imagine when listening to this music?
