23/3/20 Music at home 

Each year group has a suggested activity – one Internet based and one non-internet based. Children can choose one or do both. All internet tasks are on a secure website where children are not able to communicate with strangers, but please do still keep an eye on what they are doing. I have used them before and not only are they fun, but I feel they are safe for under 12s. They will need a parent/carer’s email address and a login (not their full name) which a parent/ carer will need to do for them. Please make sure you use a PARENT'S EMAIL to register for these activities as this keeps everyone safe online. Click here to see the School COVID 19 SAFEGUARDING ADDENDUM and why school staff need to communicate with children via parents. 

Parents may email Mrs Malone with any questions:

Year 3 – Instruments of the Orchestra Project 

Go to this website: https://listeningadventures.carnegiehall.org/

Ask an adult to set you up a Login as this game takes quite a while and you won’t want to lose your progress.

Listen to the music, play the game and try and get to the end and save all the instruments of the orchestra. Don’t forget to always read the book and click to listen to all the instruments.

If you don’t have the Internet, listen to Classic FM on the radio (or the TV often has this too) and try and work out which instruments you can hear. How are they played? What are they made of? What the music makes you imagine – can you draw this?

Update: 25/3/20 Click here and make your own orchestra 

Don't forget to take a photo of your orchestra - parents can email in photos to go in the gallery online (see year 3 page)

Non Internet based task – create word patterns to do with what you already know about Brazil and the Rainforest and play them on home-made instruments. Get someone else to copy your patterns.

Then create a question and answer pattern. For example one person plays “What is the capital?” and the answer is “Braz-il-ia Yeah!”. You can use pots and pans or whatever an adult feels would be suitable. You could write these rhythms down if you like or turn them into melodies if you have your own instrument at home.

 

Year 6 Scratch Music and the Orchestra Project

Remind yourself of the music we have listened to by clicking on this

Ten Pieces - CLICK HERE

I would like you to use Band Lab to create a piece of music that has Orchestral sounds and also Scratch and Cut Vinyl Sounds just like Gabriel did in his music. You need to use the Education BandLab site and not the one you may already have at home. Click https://edu.bandlab.com/join

Type the Code “D F Y N 0 J T“

Click “Join”

Follow the “sign up” instructions using an adult at home to help (and use their email address). You do not need to put your full name in.

Click “I am not a robot”

Make up a user name (with adults help) using just lowercase letters and numbers (you don’t need to put your full name here either)

Click on “Year 6 Assignments”

Click on Scratch Orch Task “start assignment”

Click “teacher’s assignment”

Click “BROWSE LOOPS” and nothing else from this wonderful choice of lovely things

On the right are packs of sounds called “loop packs”.

You need to use both of these packs “Scratch n Cut Vinyl” and “Heroic Orchestra” so choose one to start with.

Drag and drop loops you like (like we did in class) and when happy click “reset” loops and find the pack you have not used (Either “Scratch n Cut Vinyl” and “Heroic Orchestra”)

If you find another pack you like that also uses this style then use that instead. Remember composers are not fans of rules!

When you are happy you can save and submit your work and Mrs Malone will be able to listen to your music. You should get a reply from Mrs Malone if you have done this (via the secure Band Lab Education interface)

Non Internet based task – find a poem that you like and use things you have at home to create sound effects to go with it. Perform it to and with someone else in the house if you can.


Top Tips using BAND LAB

You can move loops around until you are happy.

Putting lots of loops together sounds great not just one at a time (that means on different line and on top of them)

Try and align the loops in groups of 4 (there are 4 beats in a bar)

You can increase the loop by clicking and dragging it.

Don't forget to SUBMIT your work to Mrs Malone - if you use a PARENT'S EMAIL ADDRESS to create your account, you will receive a comment via your parent about your music. *KEEP SAFE ONLINE!* 

Have fun!
