A day of music and lots of fun in year 3 ended with both classes composing their own songs using claves and glockenspiels. Students were pleased to see how creative they could be, and their compositions helped them learn about timbre, graphic scores and playing as an ensemble.

“Aga was teaching us music. We named our songs using our new topic so they are about mountains and volcanoes” – Muhsin

Up the Mountain

At the bottom of a mountain is the valley, and Ben Nevis is a mountain in Scotland. The top of extremely high mountains is snowy even on sunny days because of how high the peak is. We put this information in our songs using metaphors and similes in the lyrics” – Yahya M, Amira & Yasin
