Playlist

Playlist 1

Our topic this half term is called Playlist.

 

Shh What's that noise? A bash? a crash? a shake, a rattle or a low bass hum? Which do you prefer...... an acoustic singer or a booming brass band? A solitary voice singing sweetly and quietly or a magnificent choir lifting the roof?

 

Take out your ear plugs as you journey through the valley of sound and find out about instruments, the sounds they make and how they are produced. Discover how sounds are made and which sounds travel the furthest!

 

Then, sing up and compose your own class song for the local talent contest. Class factor! Can you write a number 1 hit? Be sure to stand up straight, warm up your voice and sing your heart out.

 

When your performance is done, sit back and listen to calming classical melodies, a soothing lullaby or your favourite boy band ballad!

Can you hear me over there or do I need to TALK MORE LOUDLY?

 

 

 

English - poetry, short narrative, silent movies, song lyrics, posters, information leaflets.

Art & Design -  Music inspired art

Computing - digital recordings

D&T - Making instruments

Geography - Location of countries

Maths- measures, mental calculation methods, time, data handling

                                       Fun Facts: Did you know?

 

ermites eat wood twice as fast when listening to heavy metal music! The term ‘pop music’, coined in 1926, is short for ‘popular music’. Justin Bieber’s YouTube play count is greater than the combined population of China and India! American composer, John Cage (1912–1992), composed a work in 1952 titled 4’33’’. It consists of four minutes and thirty-three seconds of silence! The name of the only member of ZZ Top without a beard is Frank Beard. Before composing, Beethoven often dipped his head in cold water. At only four lines long, the Japanese national anthem is the shortest national anthem. The longest is the Greek national anthem at 158 verses long. The harmonica is the world’s best-selling instrument. A grand piano can be played faster than an upright piano. A piano covers the full spectrum of all orchestra instruments, from below the lowest note of the double bassoon to above the piccolo’s top note. Having reached number one in the UK in 1968 with the song ‘What A Wonderful World’, Louis Armstrong holds the record of oldest chart topper. He was 67 at the time. So-called ‘gut strings’ for acoustic Spanish guitars were originally made from the small intestines of sheep. The production material changed to nylon during World War II, when all available gut was used in the production of surgical thread for wounded soldiers. Stravinsky wrote a short piece of music for a ballet with elephants.

 
Ideas for Homework
 

 

Talk to parents and grandparents about music and dance trends that were popular when they were young. Bring in findings to share on a class timeline. Listen out for classical music used on TV. Can you spot any tunes you know? Read a listings page in the local paper or a venue programme to see what bands are playing near where you live. Make a list of venues used in the local area for live music, from big arenas to park bandstands. Learn a song by heart or play a piece of music on an instrument. Practise and see if you can do it without making any mistakes!  Think up a funny name for a new band! Design a logo for the band. Make a ‘spot the intro’ quiz for your classmates or family. Play an introduction to a song and see who can recognise it first. Write a fan letter to a musical hero explaining what you like about their music. Write song lyrics for a new song for your favourite band. Watch a beat box choir or performer online. How do they do that? Hear a choir sing or watch a performance online. Can you hear the low and high voices? Find out what the different singing parts in a choir are called. Have a sponsored silence! For how long do your grown-ups think you can keep quiet?Make a musical dictionary. Check out the meaning of beat, dynamics, harmony, rhythm, round, chord, octave, major key, minor key, crotchet, quaver, semibreve, sharp and flat. List the terms in alphabetical order.

Class Routines

PE kits need to be in school every day and should consist of a plain white t shirt and plain black or blue shorts. Plimsolls are not necessary as we tend to work in bare feet. An warm outdoor kit with appropriate trainers is also required in school every Thurs.

No jewellery is permitted at school except for a watch and a single pair of stud earrings, any other jewellery worn for school will have to be removed for safety purposes.

A book bag or similar is essential to keep in your child's drawer at school, this ensures important letters and documents get home to you and reduces disruption due to trips in and out of the classroom to retrieve books etc. from bags kept on pegs.

Homework - reading, spelling and times tables practice is required every week. (the more the better) Additional homework will be set as and when deemed necessary.
