Music 2021-2022


Nursery children responded through movement to Antonio Vivaldi's Winter music. 

They moved like floating snowflakes to the quieter music, and then thought of warming-up actions when the music got louder.

Year One went on a sounds walk listening for long and short sounds.




Year 6 have been learning about World Music traditons. 

They identified instruments used to perform traditional English folk songs, sang Scarborough Fair and

had a go at Morris dancing!

Year 4 performed Viking Rock using their Junk Orchestra as percussion accompaniment.

Nursery and Reception have explored sounds on the theme of Harvest. 

They all learned to sing 'Harvest Time Song'. 


Hattie and Mason in Reception added two extra verses -

can you hear which foods and actions they have chosen?


Year 1 listened to Kerry Andrew's No Place Like and identified the sounds in the music. 

Then they went on their own Sounds Walk around the school. 

They used the sounds they heard on the walk and body percussion to create their own composition of

No Place Like.


Year 2 have been exploring Long and Short sounds. 

They thought of lots of animal noises and described them as Long or Short.

They then performed them as a rap.


Year 2 enjoyed using their voices expressively and creatively

to perform Red Riding Rap to their Year 1 audience.
