It is worth having a look through the above explanations before our Zoom, and the slides for the lesson as well as the activity can be found below.

Your task this week will involve creating a poster, booklet or powerpoint about the mission of the diocese and parish.

 

Information to include: 

  • What a diocese is

  • Who leads our diocese

  • Where our diocese is led from

  • What does our diocese do in the community

Music (Musician of the Week)

This week we are focusing on: Nina Simone

She gathered a following of fans before receiving a record deal.  Her music spanned many genres such as jazz, classical, blues, gospel and pop, and much of her style was influenced by 17th century classical composer Johann Sebastian Bach.

The next song is I Put a Spell on You, which was originally written by a man called Screamin' Jay Hawkins, this was a huge success and sounded very different from the original.  Nina Simone always put her unique style on songs and the orignal artists would often say they preferred her versions of their songs!

In 2003, she received an honorary degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in 2003, the place which originally refused her entry. And there is a statue of Nina in North Carolina which was built in 2010, seven years after her death. 

Below is a comparing task, so that you can choose whether to compare Nina Simone's songs with a newer version of Feeling Good by Muse, or the original I Put a Spell on You by Screamin' Jay Hawkins
