Mark making to music

This morning for group time the children listened to different types of music and did some drawing whilst they listened. The children thought about the pace of the music and were able to identify which piece was fast and which piece of music was slow. They chose whether to use crayons or coloured pencils and were able to tell me that they were drawing different patterns or marks when they heard a faster song.

Could you choose a piece of music to draw to?

Our new music wall

 Our very own little grange band has arrived!

This afternoon the children were introduced to our new music wall in the garden. The children chose different “musical” items and helped to hang them up including a colander, a silver plate, some different sized copper pipes, a dog bowl, a small silver bucket and a large bin! The children loved working together to make music. They tried playing the different items loudly and quietly but their favourite was, of course, loudly!

“Do you like my music?”

“This one makes a banging noise”

“I can play two together”

What would you use as a musical instrument?

 

Mark making to music

this week the children listened to two different  pieces of music. As they listened they was asked to say what they thought of it and use the pens and paper to create a picture whilst moving to the rthym.

We had some interesting results in how the children set themselves for the drawing..

some chose to lay down, some chose to sit on their knees and some chose to move around
