Together with your child, explore the sounds that you have heard on different journeys.
For example: What does the journey to and from the park sound like? Whether by foot, by bus or in a car, the journey will involve a range of sounds.
What may we hear on the way?
•A journey to and inside the supermarket will involve a range of different sounds.
• A journey from their bedroom upstairs to the living room or kitchen downstairs. Listen out for sounds on journeys with your child. Think about how these sounds can be recreated at home. You could make a piece of music together that represents different types of journeys that you make. Are there any surprises on your journey and what may this sound like? Invite your child to draw a journey and then play this journey by using body percussion, vocals and sound makers in the home.
Follow the link and watch the videos. Complete the activity to make a musical jam jar! Please send me your photographs on Class Dojo. Have fun!
Bring The Noise
This week I'd like you to have some fun, making some noise, with BBC Bring The Noise- Play It!
Have fun with each of these activities:
Listen And Layer - This helps us hear the different layers of a song. Turn the different layers on and off to hear different parts and how the song changes.
Feel The Beat - A chance to join in with the song and feel the beat. You can clap along or play a instrument to the beat of the song and see when it gets faster and when it slows down.
Make Some Noise - In this game, you can play different instruments and experiment with them.
Can you learn and sing the song 'The Animals Went in 2 by 2'? Would you like to use actions? What actions could you use and where? Can you use your hands or a pot and spoon to make a percussion sound?
Please listen to all three pieces of music below.
What animal do you think the song is about- why? Is it loud or quiet? Is it fast or slow? Is it twinkling or rippling? Could you describe what you are hearing? Can you hear any differences in any of the songs? Do you recognise any of the instruments?
