Would you like the chance to be a world record holder? 

If so check out the email I have received from Young Voices below, follow the link and let's get involved.

Dear Teacher,

We’re really excited to invite you to get involved in a special #YVatHome project over the next few weeks!

Young Voices, the current Guinness World Record holders for the world’s largest simultaneous sing are staging the the World’s Largest Children’s Choir at Home for a record breaking #PowerInMe Singing Challenge and dedicate it to all our teachers.

On 2nd June 2020 - you are invited along with families and children from across the world to pay tribute to all teachers by joining together to sing “The Power in Me” from the safety of your own homes.

You can register your involvement at youngvoices.co.uk/powerinme to access learning resources for the song. More importantly - we are asking you to share this email with your parents and children to get them directly involved.

In the weeks leading up to the main event on 2nd June, you are encouraged to take part in the #PowerInMe singing challenge and to film yourselves singing the song’s lyrics “I've got the Power In Me" and post it online with the hashtag to see who responds completing the song’s chorus "You’ve got the Power in You!".

It is all explained here by David Lawrence and Francisco Nunez.

There are also a series of online workshops to prepare you for the big day:

Tuesday 12th May 4pm UK/11am EST - ‘Conductor Swap’ - David Lawrence runs an online rehearsal/workshop for children in the US
Thursday 14th May 4pm UK/11am EST  - Rebecca Lawrence interviewed by Gigi Morley on being a composer and composing the Power in Me
Tuesday 19th May 4pm UK/11am EST  - ‘Conductor Swap’ - Francisco Nunez runs an online rehearsal/workshop for children in the UK
Thursday 21st May 4pm UK/11am EST - Andy Instone will run a live movement session to teach the moves for Power in Me for everyone who has signed up

Have you got the power in you? Get involved!

Stay safe and keep singing

Keep your music knowledge up-to-date with these fun puzzles from Ms Salt. Remember, if you don't know the meaning of any of the words use a dictionary to look them up. Enjoy and no cheating, only look at the answer sheet once you have had a go yourself.

Ms Salt has provided each year group with some activities to keep your music lessons going. There are even some blank scores for you to compose your own tunes. If you can record them and send them to me at j.okeeffe@timberleyacademy.bham.sch.uk I can share them here. Enjoy!
