Music Golden Time - KS1
This term Years 1-3 have been looking at different pieces of music and using a variety of instruments to create their own musical pieces.
The children started by exploring the different sounds they could create with the Boomwhacker instruments, following written music and devising their own.
We then watched excerpts from Disney's The Jungle Book and the children worked
in small groups to recreate some of the sounds of the jungle, including the animals, using xylophones. We continued this by listening to The Carnival of the Animals - a fantastic piece by the French composer Camille Saint-Saens and the children had a go at guessing which animals the composer was trying to describe. This proved to be great fun and the children then enjoyed recreating some animal sounds of their own using a wider range of instruments, such as shakers, wood blocks, guiros, tambourines and bells.
