TERM 1 CURRICULUM LETTER 2017 Year 1 During Term 1 the students in Year 1 will focus on RHYTHM/BEAT, PITCH and DYNAMICS. They will:
explore and imitate sounds using a variety of sound sources and use them to create and perform soundscapes that tell a story or represent a sequence of events.
identify high and low pitched sounds as well as simple melodic patterns that move in steps and leaps.
distinguish between beat and rhythm by performing marching songs and Identify loud/soft by listening to recorded music.
perform a variety of songs including action songs, echo singing, chants, rhymes and musical games using voice, percussion instruments and body percussion.
We have had lots of fun listening to 'LITTLE RABBIT FOO FOO'. We learnt to sing the song and added sound effects to many of the events in the story using our instruments! We played along by tapping the beat and playing the rhythms of the lyrics. It was lots of fun!
