Afternoon - Wider Curriculum 


Your first task is to match the correct key words to their definitions. Watch these videos first and then have a go at the ‘Music – Matching Definitions’ sheet. 


Next, click on the link below that explores a range of sounds and rhythms made with your hands, body and a plastic cup! You will also need a pencil and a piece of paper. 


Using what you have learnt from this video, your task is to create your own music using your hands and body. You can change the tempo in your music and use different rhythms as shown in the video. Use different movements such as clicking, clapping, tapping your knees, your body or the table. This will also help to vary the pitch in your music. Once you have practiced, see if an adult is free to record your music which can then be shared with your teacher on Tapestry. 


Would you like a challenge? You can write about your music and describe the tempo, pitch, rhythm and pulse throughout your music.
