Before the lesson
- To understand how music can represent changes in 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 a describing word to go with each of the natural elements, e.g. rolling waves, whispering breeze, to help inspire their sounds.
Pupils working at greater depth: Ask to identify instruments and musical dimensions (dynamics, How high or low a sound is, etc) using appropriate musical terminology.
Layer two or more sounds together in the paired activity and create a chain of several sounds depicting a calm sea.
