What's that sound?

In this topic we will learn how sound is made and how it travels. We will look at the poem The Sound Collector by Roger McGough and take a tour around the school and collect sounds that we hear along the way. We then will use these sounds to create our own poem and use onomatopoeic words. The children will also have the opportunity to view a short movie to discover how music can be used to create atmosphere and mood. Next the children will have the opportunity to look at a variety of music and instruments from around the world and even have the chance to play a digerdoo during our workshop. During Innovate Week, the children will create lyrics to their own song and rehearsed them as a class. At the end of the week the children will perform their song during the Year 4 Class Factor.
