In the first week at Marsden Rd we all said HELLO to each other for the first time. It was wonderful. We listened to the melody in each others names, and learnt to draw that melody using a graphical notation technique of listening while drawing a line on paper that changes as yourespond to pitch. This way of listening very useful when learning to get to know each other and how everyone has their unique way of communicating.
We also spent some time listening to our surroundings in silence. Then we all made a list of what we could hear. Someone in the room said 'Meow!' when we all had our eyes closed, which made everyone laugh!
