Summer Term 2021 

The main doors will open at 8:50am for the children to arrive and will close at 9am. At the end of the school day the children will be dismissed at 3:05pm

 

‘Playlist’

We will listen to a live musical performance, picking out the different sounds and techniques. 

What’s that noise? Is it a bash, a crash, a shake or a hum? 

Roger McGough’s poem, The Sound Collector, will inspire us to go on a sound walk around school. 

We will investigate the volume of sounds and make vibrations using different equipment. Our toes will be tapping along to all kinds of music, and we will be listening to song lyrics to get lots of ideas to write our own. 

Create artwork that represents jazz music, and look at famous, jazz-influenced art. 

Investigate how our ear works, how sound travels and learn about pitch. 

Investigate how musical instruments work and enjoy making our own. Share our favourite music and explore how music is used in everyday life. As a challenge, we will create an uplifting celebration song. It’s time for our encore! 

Write information leaflets about pop stars.

Expressive arts Music of the 20th century, art inspired by music, dance Science and technology Making instruments, presentations, sound Humanities Location of countries Mathematics and numeracy Representing data, standard units of measurement and money.

Music has the power to change our emotions, make us think and inspire us to dance! Why not talk to friends and relatives about music that was popular when they were younger? You could also watch performances online and think about how the music makes you feel.
