Music Curriculum - Year 3
In Year 3, we start to learn to play the recorder.
We have to think about the correct way to hold the recorder and how to blow gently to create a nice sound! We also learn more about basic notation and rhythm, creating and recording our own short rhythmic phrases. In our composition unit, we create a soundscape to go with our topic work, such as the storm scene in ‘Lost and Found’ or a Stone Age scene in our topic ‘Stones and Bones’. We learn about the use of dynamics and tempo in music and develop our own symbols to give instructions to our groups when we are performing our compositions.
