Hi all, I hope you are staying safe and all is well!
Today marks the start of the Summer Term!
This term our theme is ‘Feel the Beat’.
As you know, usually we get a chance to chat about some of the things we would like to learn and plan activities from there. As we are not together at this present time, we need to discuss what we would like to learn and plan our activities.
I have set up a Teams account and can see that some of you are using it. If we can all use teams to chat and share ideas please we can go from there. To access it, log into HWB. Go into Microsoft 365 and click on Teams. You will see our classroom on there and all assignments and posts.
Here are some ideas I came up with to do with ‘Feel the Beat’:
-Research how sound travels
-Find out about rhythm and pitch – How does different music styles make you feel?
-Research music artists / songs
-Find music in different countries & how used in their celebrations. Compare and contrast.
-Design album cover for your favourite song/artist
-Create music to accompany a short film.
-Make musical instruments using resources available
-How are musical instruments are made/played? – write a set of instructions.
-Learn about how the heart works- why does it ‘beat’?
-Why are Police known as being ‘On the Beat’? Find out about where this term came from and what it means. Pay tribute to our police (make a poster etc)
If you can get your ideas onto Teams by Friday 24th April please we will create our new termly planning.
See you soon!
