BBC Music Day 2017

BBC Music Day

Thursday 15th June 2017

Across the school we listened to pieces of music taken from the BBC Ten Pieces project. In each class we thought carefully about the imagery of the music, and questionned how it made us feel. We then chose a way to respond to the music creatively…

Y1 listened to pitch change in Grieg’s piece ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’.

They imitated the rise and fall, as well as the changes in tempo.

As Y1 listened to the music they drew what it made them think of.

Drawings included swirling whirls, drum kits and scary monsters!

Createive responses included scary troll masks, painted characters, maze making and creative writing to continue the story!

Y4 listened to Anna Meredith’s ‘Connect It’. They imitated movements from the film to improvise their own group dances.
