Spring Term 2022 - Year 3/4 - Drawing Music

 

 

Drawing to sounds and music can be a lovely listening activity, you can invite your child to ‘dance with their hands’ whilst using their crayons, pencils, felt tips, paint brushes, encouraging them to listen to the music and respond to the music through their visual art.

You can explore this with different types of music – watch your child, do the contrasting sections affect how they draw or paint?

Experiment with different types of music, does your child have a preference for pieces of music to draw/paint to?

 

Spring Term 2022 - Year 5/6 -Sounds of daily life

 

 

 

Explore the sounds heard on different journeys. For example:

  • What does the journey to the park sound like – what may we hear on the way?
  • A journey around a supermarket will involve a range of different sounds.
  • A journey to school, whether by foot, by bus or in a car will also involve a range of sounds.

Listen out for sounds on journeys and think about how these sounds could be recreated at home?

You could make a piece of music together that represents different types of journeys that you make.

Are there any surprises on your journey and what may this sound like?

Draw a journey and then play this journey by using body percussion, vocals and sound makers in the home.
