Music Making

The children have been learning about musical terms- dynamics ( how the volume of a piece of music changes) and tempo- ( how the speed of a piece of music might change).They experimented using untuned percussion and started to write their own graphic notation (using symbols to determine if their musical piece was going to be loud or soft).

Year 2 used multilink cubes to practise giving each other instructions. They had to design a shape and instruct their partner on how to make it. No peeking!
