Making Music

 

This was a very loud and noisy week! 

We enjoyed exploring all of the various musical instruments – our favourite instruments were the large cymbals and the xylophone! 

We learnt that different instruments make different sounds and are played in different ways; such as hitting, tapping, blowing or banging. 

We can play some instruments loudly or quietly (dynamics) and fast or slow (This is called a beat or tempo.) 

We listened to the music and moved our bodies to the rhythm. We waved our ribbons and listened to the beat. 

We also made shakers; we filled a pot with different materials of our choice, such as dried rice, lentils, beads, oats and stones and sealed a lid on top. We discovered that some of our shakers sounded different to our friend’s ones.
