Year 5 were experimenting with composing music today. They had to think about the number of beats in each bar, which notes would be able to work together to fit into the four beats and the melody they wanted to make.
They had to write the musical notation for their pieces of music too.
A lot of fun was had, lots of hard work in composing was done and some lovely tunes were made.
Have a listen to Jess and Ava’s compositions.
The class went on to evaluate their pieces of music. They had to think about what went well as well as what could have been improved.
For some, they had made quite complicated arrangements, so they were hard to perform fluently. They needed to keep looking at their notations which stopped the flow of the sound.
