Summer 1 - What's the Metre?
This half term we will be using Music Express to learn about the beat and the metre of pieces of music. We will be identifying the strong beat in different metres (of 2, 3 or 4 beats), exploring metre in a song, combining instrumental parts in different metres and using a musical pattern to improvise a melody to accompany it.
Autumn 2 - Sounds
We will be working from the scheme Music Express when we explore sounds as a link with our science topic. The children will think about how sounds are produced and classified. They will then explore timbre (the characteristic quality of sound) and structure when looking a music from around the world.
Autumn 1 - Sleeping Beauty
Class 3 will be using the story of Sleeping Beauty, from Three Rapping Rats, as a stimulus to explore getting slower and faster with sound effects to represent parts of the story. They will learn simple, short poems that they will create their own body percussion for, to enhance the telling of the story. Our focus will be on keeping in time with each other and creating a piece of music to perform as a class.
