In Year 3 we have been beginning to learn how to play the recorder. To start with we found it quite difficult not to blow too hard into the mouth piece, but as we have practiced we have got much better at creating the perfect sound through controlling how hard we blow into the recorder.

- Little Fly
- No More Milk
- Traffic Jam
- Caterpillar Bye-bye
- Joe, Joe
