Winter Melodies Activities
This is an interactive powerpoint with activities to identify different melodies.
Melody activity sheet:
Choose four of the melodies from the sheet, cut them out and order them. Write the note names underneath each phrase. If you have a tuned instrument at home you could have a go at playing your composition. Alternatively you could try playing it on this virtual piano https://www.skoove.com/blog/virtual-piano/ (Change the range to 'computer keyboard plays from C4 to C6')
You can upload pictures of your labelled melodies onto Seesaw. If you manage to play your melody, you might like to send me a recording of it.
5/6S is a mixed age group class with some year 5 children and some year 6 children.
We have a 2 year rolling curriculum to ensure that the children cover new and interesting topics each year.
Victorian England (as part of this topic we complete a local history and geography study of the local area, learn about the work of Victorian artists and architects and do work linked to the fantastic novel, 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty).
Geography of Europe (we make sure we are familiar with European countries and cities as well as looking more closely at the Mediterranean region).
Maya Civilisation (we learn about the fascinating history of the ancient Maya, including their beliefs, past times, achievements and what remains from their civilisation).
All this and so much more!
