Creative Afternoon:

 

HELLO MUSIC MAESTROS! Welcome to another fabulous week of MUSIC 😊

 

We’re very excited! Over the past few weeks, friends of Encore - children, young people and adults – have recorded themselves playing ‘All You Need Is Love’ by the Beatles. Now, all the separate recordings have been put together to make one ‘virtual’ performance. Look closely and you might spot some your teachers or Wider Opportunities tutors! Have a listen. What do you think?  

 

 

Appraising – How many instruments can you name? There are a few that you may not recognise. Can you guess what they are? Look at the credits to see if you’re correct! 

 

Listening - There’s something very special about singing in a choir. Have a listen to the PS22 Chorus. The children are Year 6s from a primary school in Staten Island, New York.    

 

The song was originally performed by the American rock band ‘Journey’ released in the USA in 1981. It has appeared in many films and TV series. A cover was made for the musical show ‘Glee’ which has made it very popular. The children are joined by Steve Augeri, lead singer of band. What does he say about singing at the end of the video? Do you agree?

Appraising – Listen to the original version of the song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k8craCGpgs

 

Here are some questions about ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’

  • Do you like the song? Why, Why not?
  • What can you hear?
  • What is the style of the music?
  • How is the song put together? Choose from these parts of a song: chorus, pre-chorus, instrumental, introduction, verse. You might like to get someone you live with to help you.

 

HINT: A pre-chorus is a part of song that comes between a verse and the chorus. It’s often used if the verse and chorus are quite different from each other. Answer below. 

 

Song – Now it’s your turn! Time to raise your voice! Don’t forget those dance moves.

 

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x 2)

Got something to say, got a difference to make, 

A part I can play and a role I can take,

I believe in myself, express how I feel,

I like who I am and I’m keepin’ it real.

 

Raise my voice, make a noise,

’Cos we’re all havin’ fun with it. (Fun with it.)

Can’t you see, this is me

And it’s OK to go for it. (Go for it.)

 

Raise my voice, make a noise,

’Cos we’re all havin’ fun with it. (Fun with it.)

Can’t you see, this is me

And it’s OK to go for it.

Makes me wanna sing!

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x2)

 

I want to be strong, live long and be safe.

My generation has something to say,

So much to learn, enjoy and achieve.

I reach for my goal to be all I can be.

 

Raise my voice, etc.

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x 2)

 

(Chanted) BULLYING? NO!

WORK TOGETHER? YES! 

HIDE MYSELF? NO!

BE ME? YEAH!

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x 2)

 

Strong side by side, we lift those who fall, 

Stand by our friends and we hear when they call.

Let’s all make a change, all play our part,

It takes you and me, and here’s where it starts:

 

Raise my voice etc.

 

Composing – Composer Luciano Berio uses the voice in unusual ways to create a piece of music. The singer has to mutter, gasp, laugh, whine and go through a range of emotions from tense to dreamy to bewildered. Many people have also experienced a rollercoaster of emotions over the past few months. In this activity you will compose your own 'Lockdown Sequenza' for voice.

 

 

OR…

 

Creative Afternoon

 

STEM Challenge – Build a Cereal Box Marble Run

 

Have you ever wondered what to do with those empty cereal boxes? Follow the simple instructions on the attached sheet to make a cereal box marble run. If you don’t have a spare cereal box, another cardboard box will work just as well!

 

 

 

Challenge

 

 

Can you make a marble roller coaster, which brings a marble down from a starting height of 1 metre without any drops of longer than 5cm?

 

You could make it a competition with your family – whose marble takes the longest to successfully descend 1 metre?

 

Remember to send me any pictures or videos of your marble runs and roller coasters on Showbie or via email. I look forward to seeing what you produce!

Music from Mrs West

Listening

Most colleges in America have marching bands. Disneyland’s All-American College Band goes beyond marching to incorporate some fantastic rhythmic moves to reflect the mood of the different sections of the music. Can you name all the instruments in this clip? Can you spot any players who are doubling (when they play more than one instrument and switch between them)? 

 

American College Band: Star Wars               https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGyFrEcPYlI

 

The Star Wars music has different sections or movements. Which is your favourite? Describe the mood of the music; is the music trying to tell a story? Think about how the composer uses pitch, tempo, dynamics, rhythm and so on. 

 

Now choose a contrasting section. How is the music different from your favourite part? How many reasons can you think of?

 

Quiz

We all love a quiz! Guess the movies these theme songs belong to. You could split this into a couple of sections as it is quite a long quiz. Enjoy! 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HI49yUqcMH0

 

Music Theory

You will probably have seen a musical stave (known as a staff in America). Here are two videos for you to watch and join in with to help you learn about the lines and spaces on a stave: 

 

After watching this video, you’ll soon remember the names of the music notes.

 

 

  • Try this note name quiz to see how well you have learnt the note names 

            https://www.classicsforkids.com/games/note_names.php

 

There are several elements of music. Musical experts have differing opinions about just how many elements there are. But they all agree that dynamics is one of them. Watch this video to learn just what a difference dynamics make to the music we play and listen to.

 

 

Song

This is a song called ‘Just Sing!’. Could you add some actions or dance moves to match this happy tune?                   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ut5_ZaEAS3s

 

 

I look forward to seeing what you produce!  Remember to keep in touch on Showbie or via my email address.

Creative Afternoon: Art

This week we have an Art themed week, kindly put together by Mrs Drake:

Investigating Paul Klee

 

‘The Goldfish’ 1925

Look at the picture.  What effect does the dark background have? There are lots of fish, how do you think the other fish feel about the goldfish? What makes the goldfish stand-out? What techniques you think Klee might have used to create the goldfish painting?

 

 

Read the following link with information about this picture http://www.artchive.com/1925/klee.html

 

If you have them you could use wax crayons or oil pastels to cover the whole page in a mix of bright colours, then cover the page with black oil pastel so there’s no colour seen. Using a paperclip that has been unravelled, scratch at the page to make a shape and the colour will be revealed.  Remember to be safe when using this!

Or you could create a drawing with bright coloured wax crayon or oil pastels, where there are some white bits left. Using a black water colour, brush over the page to create the background – the oil should resist the paint and show up.

 

If you don’t have any of these, no problem, simply using colouring pencils, felt tips, paints, sharpies, whatever you have that can be used to create colour and away you go.  You could even have a go at creating a piece on the following free app on an ipad, https://tayasui.com/sketches/   or on your computer if you have a program for art already on it.

 

We have been creating different types of art using Klee’s styles. Pick your favourite piece and tell me why your prefer it?   Which was the easiest to create and why? Which has the nicest effect and what makes it good?

 

I look forward to seeing what you produce!  Remember to keep in touch on Showbie or via my email address.

 

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!

Maths

‘Castle and Sun’ 1928

Look at the picture.  Can you tell what the painting is? What might it look like to you?

What shapes can you see in the painting? How might Klee create art like this?

 

 

Klee used shapes to create the image of the castle and the sun. He also used colour – is that the colour of a real castle? Why would he use colours that aren’t real?  Experiment with this trying to create this style and your own castle by drawing around lots of cut-out 2d shapes, first with pencil. Once you’ve created a pencil drawing with lots of shapes, you could use a crayon or pen to draw the lines. Then use pastels or paints to colour in the shapes.

Creative Afternoon: Art

This week we have an Art themed week, kindly put together by Mrs Drake:

Investigating Paul Klee

 

Take the pencil for a walk!  The ‘Senecio’ (1922) challenge

 

Fancy a challenge? Time yourself to do a continuous line drawing of a face for 30 seconds only. Only rule, you cannot take your pencil off the paper! You can go back over lines you have drawn or create new lines, but no lifting that pencil up!  How far did you get? Then have a go for 45 seconds, then a minute, and so on.   Remember it is not about finishing it quickly but have all the detail.  Then colour the picture using a colour palette, like Paul Klee, warm, cold or neutral.  

 

Want to go further now, you have had a go at slightly abstract pictures the use his ‘Senecio’ picture below and create your own version and then colour it in or paint it.

 

 

Or…

MUSIC

 

HELLO MUSIC MAESTROS! Welcome to another fabulous week of MUSIC

The Butterfly Song- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C41tLOxjmQg

Performing: Perform confidently and accurately on your own or with a group of other people.

  1. Learn the song, following instructions above.
  2. Try clapping the rhythm of the word, ‘grayling’ (gray-ling; minim-crotchet)
  3. If you have a keyboard or tuned instrument, learn to play the introduction (F G A)
  4. Play the notes to the rhythm of the word, ‘grayling’ (F F G G A A G G). This pattern also fits with the first two lines of part 1 (‘Butterfly tell me where you come from, butterfly tell me where do you go?’) and part 2 (‘Colour my wings like yours and I’ll fly to you, soft as silk and lighter than air’)
  5. Experiment by playing these notes (F G A) with other rhythms such as, ‘swallow tail’ and ‘painted lady’ and play along at the appropriate place in the video. Can you sing and play at the same time?!

Cross-curricular links

Following on from our music and art work last week, you can design your own butterfly now you have sung and played about many types. Fold a piece of A4 paper in half and across the centre of the paper where the fold is, draw one butterfly wing. Cut around your drawing then fold the paper out and you will have both wings. Colour your butterfly like one you have seen flying in your garden.

 

I look forward to seeing what you produce!  Remember to keep in touch on Showbie or via my email address.

Investigating Paul Klee

 

Who was Paul Klee?  What was his art like?  What colours did he use? Where was he from?  How many pictures did he draw/paint? Your challenge is to investigate the life of Paul Klee. Below are some links to support this.  Find out all about his life and his art, including his colour choices and styles of art the use these to create a fact file, a poster, a video or any other format you think best displays the information. Make sure you get loads of variety as you will be using this as the basis of your art for the next few weeks!

Creative Afternoon

RAINFORESTS

Throughout the week, you will have learned a lot about the rainforests and why they are so important to our lives, animals and plants that live there and people all over the world! Today… your mission is to create a persuasive poster to inform people of how we can SAVE OUR RAINFORESTS!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p003vpd7 Watch this short clip to remind you of our wonderful rainforests and why we must protect them! 

One of the big issues that is killing our rainforests is the increased rate of deforestation… there are many reasons that this happens!

-to create fields for farming cattle or growing crops

-to produce wood to make furniture

-to produce wood pulp to make paper 

-to create space for housing

Here is a time lapse of a rainforest in Bolivia which shows just how destructive over-deforestation can be!

https://vimeo.com/4132707

 

But what can we do? 

-buy certified wood products

-use recycled paper or use scrap paper

-cut down on printing 

-buy soy products from sustainable sources

 

On your poster, you need to include…

-a catchy slogan- e.g. Rescue our Rainforests

-ways that we can save our rainforest.

-colour

-images to make it exciting (need to be relevant). 

 

I look forward to seeing what you produce!  Remember to keep in touch on Showbie or via my email address.

Creative Afternoon:

RAINFORESTS

Rainforests experience an awful lot of rain! Another word for ‘rain’ is ‘precipitation’. 

First, watch this short video created by professionals of Chester Zoo who have visited and explored several of the different rainforests around the world! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnQ8E6nzG4o

As you will have heard, in all types of rainforests… there is a LOT of heavy rain. Your task, is to build, draw or design a shelter that could protect you from the daily, heavy rain that would fall if you were living in a rainforest. If you do not have the materials you would choose- you could add labels to say what you would have used in real-life. 

Think about waterproof materials… Is the material strong enough? Would animals be able to get in?

I look forward to seeing the fantastic shelters you come up with!

 

MUSIC

HELLO MUSIC MAESTROS! Welcome to another fabulous week of MUSIC 😊

 

Last week, we looked at ways you can use signs and symbols to represent music. This week, we are going to explore some other links between art and music. 

 

When we listen to music, we often find ourselves with a picture in our head of what the music is representing or what story it is telling.  We might imagine what would be happening on a screen if the music was part of a film or television programme. 

 

Sometimes, it’s good to think of music and art the other way around and to look at a piece of artwork and imagine the music that it might inspire.

 

This week, we are giving you the option to choose which way round you might like to do your lesson – to create a piece of art inspired by music or create a piece of music inspired by art…

 

All of us at Encore Music Service would love to see video clips of you taking part in any of this week’s activities and share them on our social media channels. Remember, you must get permission from whoever looks after you first! Send to info@encore-enterprises.com

 

KS2 Project Week

 

  • First of all, watch this video which will explain what we are going to do and how we are going to do it. https://youtu.be/IlNwsUGT1-U
  • Next, look carefully at the artwork and have a listen to some of the pieces of music we suggest you use. Remember, you can use your own artwork or favourite pieces of music from home too.
  • Top tip: if you use a website like YouTube to listen to your music, minimise the screen so you can use your own amazing imagination instead of being influenced by the pictures you see.
  • We can’t wait to see and hear what you have created.

RAINFORESTS

This week, we are going to learn about rainforests.  Today, we are going to see just how beneficial the rainforest is, even when we are so far away! We will learn about the different products that are available from the rainforests.

First, play the ‘Track it Back’ game and learn about the process undergone by coffee, chocolate and bananas from being harvested to your plate!

 https://www.rainforest-alliance.org/sites/default/files/uploads/interactives/treehouse/trackitback/index.html

Below is a list of things that can be produced in a rainforest… does anything surprise you? We are very lucky that people have started to use our rainforests sustainably and support tropical farmers to grow, harvest and sell their produce at a fair price! 

Your task is to go around your home/an area, and do a survey of how much you find that comes from (or could come from) a rainforest…take a picture of the items you find if you can- you could make a collage or just put a few things into one photo! 

It is quite surprising how far some products and materials travel! You may want to research some of the types of wood e.g. Mahogany or balsa to see if any furniture or doors you have are made from it! Look through your cupboards, I was amazed by just how much I have in my kitchen, mainly spices and fruits, that could have come from the rainforest! Remember, we have alternative areas that these things are produced so not all will have come from the rainforest, but all of it possibly could have!

 

 

 

I look forward to seeing what you produce!  Remember to keep in touch on Showbie or via my email address.

English

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zd7dqp3

 

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

The story is set in early 19th-century England. A large number of wolves have migrated from Europe and Russia and are terrorising the people in rural England. The first extract introduces the main house which is called Willoughby Chase. The second extract introduces some of the main characters including Sir Willoughby, his young daughter Bonnie and her new governess Miss Slighcarp, who is working with a network of criminals, forgers and snitches to carry out a terrible plan.

 

Activity 1:

Watch musician and TV presenter YolanDa Brown read an extract from The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.

Think about the following:

  • What impression do you get of Willoughby Chase?
  • Why do you think wolves are mentioned?
  • What do you notice about the techniques used for description in this extract?

 

Activity 2:

Now watch YolanDa read another extract from The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.

What impression do you get of the relationship between Sir Willoughby and his daughter Bonnie?

 

Activity 3:

Read this extract and complete the table:

 

It was dusk - winter dusk. Snow lay white and shining over the pleated hills, and icicles hung from the forest trees. Snow lay piled on the dark road across Willoughby Wold, but from dawn men had been clearing it with brooms and shovels. There were hundreds of them at work, wrapped in sacking because of the bitter cold, and keeping together in groups for fear of the wolves, grown savage and reckless from hunger.

Snow lay thick, too, upon the roof of Willoughby Chase, the great house that stood on an open eminence in the heart of the wold. But for all that, the Chase looked an inviting home – a warm and welcoming stronghold. Its rosy herringbone brick was bright and well cared for, its numerous turrets and battlements stood up sharp against the sky, and the crenellated balconies, corniced with snow, each held a golden square of window. The house was all alight within, and the joyous hubbub of its activity contrasted with the sombre sighing of the wind and the hideous howling of the wolves without.

 

In this extract, the writer describes both the exterior (outside) and interior (inside) of the house.

  1. Skim and scan the extract and make notes on the description of the house.

You might like to record your ideas in a table.

 

Exterior

Outside of the House

Interior

Inside of the House

 

 

 

 

 

Once you have made your notes, write a paragraph comparing the exterior with the interior.

You could use the following phrases and words to link your ideas:

  • on the other hand
  • however
  • but
  • in contrast

 

Activity 4

 

‘That’s all right,’ said Sir Willoughby heartily. ‘Mustn’t let Miss Sylvia die of cold on the train. Besides, the wolves might get you, and then the poor child would be held up on the train all night for want of the signal. Never do, eh? Well, Bonnie, what is it, miss?’

‘Oh, Papa,’ said Bonnie, who had been plucking at his sleeve, ‘may I go with Solly in the chaise to meet Sylvia? May I?’

‘No indulgence should be permitted a child who has behaved as she has done,’ remarked Miss Slighcarp.

‘Oh, come, come, Miss Slighcarp, come, come, ma’am,’ said Sir Willoughby good-naturedly. ‘Young blood, you know. Besides, my Bonnie’s as good a shot at a wolf as any of them. Run along, then, miss, but wrap up snug – remember you’ll be several hours on the road.’

‘Oh, thank you, Papa! Goodbye! Goodbye, Mamma dear, goodbye, Miss Slighcarp!’ and she fondly kissed her parents and ran from the room to find her warmest bonnet and pelisse*.

‘Reckless, foolish indulgence,’ muttered the governess, directing after Bonnie a look of the purest spite.

 

We can tell a lot about a character by examining what they say and how they say it. We can think about their personality, relationships, attitudes and opinions.

Look at the examples of dialogue from this extract in the table and note down what they tell us about a character.

 

Example of Dialogue

What this tells us about the character

That’s all right,’ said Sir Willoughby heartily. ‘Mustn’t let Miss Sylvia die of cold on the train.'

 

‘No indulgence should be permitted a child who has behaved as she has done,’ remarked Miss Slighcarp.

 

‘Oh, thank you, Papa! Goodbye!'

 

 

Activity 5

Read or watch extract 1 again. This is the opening of the book The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.

 

What are your first impressions of the book? Has the extract brought up questions for you as the reader?

Write a paragraph to summarise your first impressions of the book.

 

Activity 6

Choose your favourite part and read it aloud on a voice note.

 

I can’t wait to see your work…remember to email it or send it to me on Showbie!
