Year 1 Music

Autumn Term:

Our learning this half term is based on "I am a Robot" from BBC Bring the Noise.

You can find it here.


At the end of week 1 we watched one of our girls sing her own composition, "I am Minnie Mouse, I go squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak."  Her video was on our social media page.  We also tried to play instruments in time together in a small group.  It was difficult but it was only our first time!


In Week 3 We tried to play our instruments to the rhythm. See video below

Week 4 Robot Invasion - Year 1 tried to play this on the percussion instruments. Well done Year 1

This playalong uses Ta, Ti-Ti, and Sh. Ta is what we in the UK call a crotchet, Ti-Ti are quavers and Sh! is the crotchet rest. Now we are starting to learn to read rhythms in musical notation

Week 6 - we made our own rhythms!

Autumn 2: Toys In Space!

This term we are looking at Holst's The Planets and thinking about what space sounds like!

First of all we watched an orchestra play Mars and moved around the room to it.

We learnt the words staccato and legato.  Ask us what they mean!

Week 2: We made rockets out of multilink and whooshed them up to Mars!

Can you see and hear the rising pitch?

Week 3: We made Mars Percussion patterns and tried to play them together. It was quite hard to play all at the same time
