We have been very busy learning about how music is created.
We have learnt all about:
- Pulse and rhythm
- Duration and tempo
- Melody and pitch
We have made up raps and patterns to help us to remember the meaning of the words.
Also we have been able to use our knowledge about music to make our own music using the instruments in school.
We are learning about music from all around the world!
We have had a look at music from Israel, Peru and Russia. We listened to the tempo to see whether the music increased or decreased throughout the music.
We had a go at a traditional song and dance from Israel called Bim Bam'.
We listened to a recording of peruvian pan pipes and a recording of the Russian song 'Kalinka'.
