Music Week Spring 1 2020
Years 3 and 4 have enjoyed getting a full day to immerse themselves in the joys of music. During our day, we focused on the two famous composers of Beethoven and Handel.
Children listened to and appraised the work of these composers. After making some body percussion and reflecting on the teamwork involved in orchestras, the children had the chance to work in groups to plan and compose their own pieces. They were challenged to create pieces to combat bullying or musical pieces that linked with our learning about Anglo Saxon Kings in history. The children developed their confidence in being able to perform their new compositions and thoroughly enjoyed finding the pulse and adding their own beats.
