Our Cornerstones project this term is call 'Beat, Band, Boogie!'. During the project we’ll be stepping in time to the beat and learning all about music.
We’ll listen to a range of music, identify pulse, rhythm and pitch, and move in time to the music. Leading and following instructions will help us make percussion instruments and we’ll also design our own. We’ll learn nursery rhymes including The Grand Old Duke of York and read the story of Octopus’s Garden, by Ringo Starr!
Our bodies will turn into instruments as we try to master the art of body percussion. We’ll learn lots of new songs and write lyrics and tunes of our own. We’ll listen carefully to different sounds outdoors, test our sense of hearing and find out how far different sounds can travel. All of this learning will enable us to answer this term’s Big Question: How does music make you feel?
