Today's project focus is music-themed, linking to our learning in science.
Here's a brief overview of your learning today:
Today you are being asked to create and perform a piece of original music, that means you must have made it up yourself. It has to be about 2 minutes in length (we won't be timing you, but we would like it to be longer than five seconds of course )
You must include at least three different kinds of body percussion (make sure you watch the lessons so you have ideas) but you can also add instruments or your voice, too, if you like (sing, hum, beat box, rap).
You may want to create notations of our song as you create it, so it helps you remember it.
Either send a recording of your piece to us OR be prepared to perform your creation in our afternoon Zoom. Please have your introductions ready, so you can read those before we watch your performance. (Links below)
Anna Meredith is a Scottish composer who writes electronic and acoustic music. She likes to work with orchestras, bands and choreographers to create music that uses clapping, stamping, shouting and beatboxing instead of instruments. In Anna Meredith’s body percussion piece, ‘Connect It’ a variety of rhythmic sounds and movements are passed between the performers. This musical effect is known as a canon. A canon is where two or more instruments, voices or sounds play the same music, but starting at different times.
Write an effective introduction for your music piece. Explain the title of your piece, which instruments or methods it requires and what inspired you. PLEASE remember your capital letters (or my head might spontaneously combust ).
Today you will be going over all your times tables up until 12 as well as square numbers!
Below are links to tasks. REMEMBER: The webpage will allow you to do 10 questions per task without signing up for an account, so just do the 10 questions.
You do not have to do them all at once, you might spread them out during the day. This is for you to practise and increase your knowledge and understanding. We know you will try hard so please don't worry about sending us evidence as it will be hard today!
Bug Club! How many books can you complete today?
Currently our Top 5 bugs - in NO particular order - are:
Emilie, Tilly, Lottie, Ollie, THEN three are tied at the same amount, too: Charlie, Hattie and Grace!
WHO will take the lead?
In the afternoon we come together at 1.15 pm on Zoom to share our finished music pieces. It will be wonderful to see you all then but if you can't make it, please ask a grown-up to send in a recording of you performing your music piece!
I can't wait to see what we all come up with! HAVE FUN!
