3PH have been making some exciting sounds this week! We’ve been looking at the story The Great Spender and also shapes, colours and sounds of emotions.
We listened to Gustav Holst’s Venus and Mars and generated some wonderful vocabulary to contrast the two: menacing vs peaceful, stormy vs magical.
Then we thought about how we could vary TEMPO, PITCH and DYNAMIC to create different effects with our voices and our instruments.
Finally we worked as a group to create sounds that would emphasise and highlight emotion within our story and created a whole class retelling including our key sounds to represent the emotions.
We are performing our story to parents tomorrow at our celebration gathering!
