https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/stories/melody-the-lost-bee

 

Take a pen and draw a trail, showing how the music is moving up and down, louder and quieter.

 

Listen again to the piece and make up a dance and move to the music.

 

Listen for the way the pitch of the music changes from high to low and back again – can you move like a bee flying up and down amongst the flowers?

 

 

Here is a link to the full piece on YouTube

Dear Parents,

Choose a character, then drag and drop the different symbols onto your character to create your music.

Click on the circle icon with three stripes on it (top left hand corner) and press the record button.

 

You can add and remove sounds as it is recording to change the texture.

 

Once finished, press the record button again and save your work.

Do not use your real name as this will appear on Incredibox’s playlist.

 

Next email it to me at music@st-peters-sittingbourne.kent.sch.uk and I will put your work in the Music Page Gallery. You can put your real name in the email so I know who it is from, as only I can see this. You can also share your work to the school Facebook page.

 

Have fun – I love playing with this!

This week, it would be lovely if the children could learn the song Keep Calm and Carry On to celebrate the anniversary of VE day on Friday. It is Friday’s song on the Week Seven activities from Out of the Ark and can be found here:

Year 2

Pattern            Butterfly Song

Activity 1         Listen to Butterfly song and join in as the words become familiar.

Activity 2         Make a ‘butterfly’ with your hands like the one in the picture. Listen to the track, which repeatedly counts a steady beat. Ask children to join in by tapping their ’butterfly legs’ on a table, while counting the beats (they can do this with individual fingers or threes together): 12312 3

Practise slowly at first without the audio if this helps.

Activity 3         Look at the image and count out each rhythm pattern, making a silent action on each silent number to mark the gap, e.g. ‘bendy leg’ is silent on two then on three: 1 (2) 3 1 2 (3)

Listen to Butterfly rhythms. Each rhythm has a count in of three beats. After a gap the rhythm is repeated. Which picture matches?

Practise clapping the rhythms, giving a three-beat count in to come in together.

Dear Parents,

 

I would like the children to continue their music learning while we are not at school by using the BBC programmes in the link below:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/zbpyLd7T35C9B3GlYmTRLd/tiddalik-the-frog-1-tiddalik-the-frog-was-thirsty-thirsty

Each episode features part of the story and a song to learn and there are lots of resources, such as colouring sheets, word-searches, listening activities, music activities and sheet music as well as backing tracks. I would suggest only completing one episode per day (and not every day!), and trying to explore the musical ideas as suggested in the resources.

 

I would love to see pictures or videos of any activities you have completed – maybe you could draw pictures, re-write the story or record your own version of the song using the backing track.

 

Please upload any pictures or videos to the St Peter’s Healthy Active Club Facebook page.

Happy music making!

 

Love from Mrs Michell
