This term has been very musical in Year 1! We have been listening to different genres of music including classical and rhymes as well as exploring different instruments from the percussion, string, brass and woodwind family. From bagpipes, Bango and Ukulele, to maracas, bells and tambourines.

We watched and listened to an orchestra playing the music of Peter and the Wolf and even composed our own piece of music, linking to the story of Harry the happy Mouse that we have been reading.  

Each term we appraise pieces of music for example, how does the music make you feel? Do you like it? What instruments can you hear? Can you hear the beat? Is the tempo fast or slow? Are the dynamics loud or soft?


Can you find the beat?
