Creative Afternoon - Music

Music

Listening: 

 

Watch this clip:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRIIO408ats

 

Listen to all the different sounds they are getting from these amazing instruments.  Which part would be easiest to play?  Why?

 

Have some fun: use body percussion to play along with the song.  Use these actions for each symbol or have a go at making up your own:

 

Red = Clap

Yellow = Knee Clap

Green = Click

Blue = Stamp

Purple = Chest Tap

 

Get someone to film you and send it to Showbie or via my email.  I’m sure you are all going to make me smile!

 

Singing:

 

Learn the song at www.youtube.com/watch?v=BT43nZRnVEc

 

Once you have learned it, challenge yourself to sing it a few more times, starting at a higher pitch each time.

 

Now have a go at learning this song:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohN28IOozMI

 

Learn the chorus first:

 

There’s a power in the music

There’s a spirit in the song.

When our voices join together

We are fearless, we are one.

And we feel a sense of freedom

As it carries us along.

There’s a power in the music

And a spirit in my song.

 

Send videos of your singing to Showbie to my email!

 

 

I look forward to seeing what you produce today!  Send me your creations on Showbie or via email!

Creative Afternoon - Art

Andy Goldsworthy

Let’s make the most of the lovely weather.  Let’s get out into the garden.

 

 

Andy Goldsworthy is a key artist in the “Land Art” movement – creating temporary art by working with nature. 

 

Many of his creations are made solely by using his bare hands, teeth and any “natural” tools that he happens to find. 


His art is often temporary, so photography plays a key role in his artwork – capturing the art, before it decays, falls apart or floats away.

 

 
   

Remember to adhere to the new social distancing rules.

 

I look forward to seeing what you produce!  Send me your creations on Showbie or via email!

 

 

Remember to do lots of reading too!  READ, READ, READ!  Log-in to MyOn and ReadTheory for lots of reading material.  Audible and Amazon are now offering free books to download too!

 

Have a good day!
