Ssh… What’s that noise? Is it a bash, a crash, a shake or a hum? This half term, we’ll listen to a live musical performance, picking out the different sounds and techniques. Roger McGough’s poem, The Sound Collector, will inspire us to go on a sound walk around school. 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. As a challenge, we’ll create an uplifting celebration song. It’s time for our encore!
Our knowledge organisers show the children the content, facts and vocabulary within their topic and are used throughout to guide learning.
