Before the lesson
- To understand that music can be used to represent an environment
Pupils should be taught to:
- Listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and recorded music
- Use their voices expressively and creatively
Pupils needing extra support: Should work with a more confident talk partner to identify sounds.
Support pupils to identify an adjective to describe the sound of each of the natural elements, eg: crashing waves, booming thunder, to help inspire their sounds.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should identify instruments and musical dimensions (dynamics, How high or low a sound is, etc) in the music.
Layer two or more sounds together in the paired activity, for example, rain and sunshine.
