During music this summer term, children will be focussing on the following topics:
‘Around the world’ with a musical focus on pitch and a curriculum link to Geography. The children will explore pentatonic melodies and syncopated rhythms, learning that the fundamental dimensions of music are the same all over the world.
‘Singing French’ with a musical focus on pitch and a curriculum link to Languages. The children will enhance learning languages through songs. Children will be introduced to French greetings, vocabulary and numbers as they play lively singing games.
‘Singing Spanish’ with a musical focus on pitch and a curriculum link to Languages. The children will sample the sights and sounds of the Spanish-speaking world, including greetings, counting to twelve and playing a singing game. The children will explore part-singing and accompaniments in four contrasting songs.
‘Communication’ with a musical focus on composition and a curriculum link to Literacy. The children will create news programmes, complete with theme music and school news headlines. Using songs and raps, this musical news bulletin will alert the school to the burning issues of the day!
