Year 2 Music

Autumn Term: The Disgusting Sandwich

This week we explored the glockenspiels and put the notes in order so we can start our composition soon. We found Mrs Williams' puppets - Chase, Dory, Elsa, Fred Flintstone, Gruffalo, Ana and Bee

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you know the names of the notes?

 

 

In week 2 we tried putting 3 notes together to make high and low compositions.  Mrs. Williams was very proud and video'd Caterpillars, but the camera wouldn't download them sadly.

Autumn 2: The Sleepy Story Orchestra

This term we area learning all about the instruments of the orchestra and the effects of dynamics on the music (how loud and quiet it is)

 

Week 1: We learnt the Italian names for quiet and loud - piano (pronounced pi-ah-no) and forte (for-tay)

Week 2: We ordered the percussion instruments from quietest to loudest (piano to forte!)

Week 3 we looked at string instruments.  Mrs Williams and Zenny sang the Titanic chorus with Mrs Williams playing the only 3 chords she knows on the guitar!
