We’ve been having a musical few days in Peridot! Miss Reid tasked us with composing, writing and performing our own short melodies with a space theme!
1. We first learnt some simple clap rhythms which went with the words: SOLAR SYSTEM, PLANET, ASTRONAUT, EXPLOSION & EARTH. We had to think about crochets, quavars and minims and write down our rhythms. 2. Then we had 5 notes to play with and changed our rhythms into melodies. 3. The trickiest task was learning to play our compositions, and play together in time!
It was lots of fun. We were able to practice our recorder skills and some of us even brought in our own instruments! Check us out!
