Class 4/5N

Spring Term  - 2018



Welcome back after the Christmas, we hope you have enjoyed the break and have re-charged your batteries for an exciting Spring Term.

Our topic this half term is PLAYLIST!!


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

We will listen to musical performances, and Roger McGough’s poem, The Sound Collector, will inspire us as we pick out different sounds and techniques. We’ll investigate the volume of sounds and make vibrations using different equipment. Our toes will be tapping along to all kinds of music, and we’ll be listening to song lyrics to get lots of ideas to write our own. We’ll create artwork that represents jazz music, and look at famous, jazz-influenced art. We’ll find out how our ear works, how sound travels and learn about pitch. In D&T, we’ll investigate how musical instruments work and enjoy making our own. We’ll share our favourite music and explore how music is used in everyday life.

For our encore, we’ll write information leaflets about famous pop stars and icons from the world of music.
