Year 3 would like to tell you about our Music lessons this term !
First we composed music in the style of the Aztecs. We had fun using natural and man-made materials in the school grounds to create sound and rhythm.
After that our focus has been Animal Magic. We have added mimed greetings and percussion accompaniments to the Tortoise song. Then we made animal hasthas (hand shapes) using hand movements for different animals. At the moment we are composing our own music to represent an animal moving. We are going to use graphic notation to record our music.
Here are some photographs of our music lessons.
