A Day in the Snow
There’s no shortage of options when it comes to Christmas activities at Key Stage 3. Singing carols, using sleigh bells and all manner of festive musical options present themselves. One of my favourite things about the Christmas season has to be the weather, and the snow in particular. In a bid to encourage the forces of nature to bestow us with some snowfall, this unit can be a lot of fun to complete with your pupils during the winter. Not that you want a snow day, of course...
The work that the pupils will complete is focused on:
- composing in response to visual stimuli
- composing music with contrasting sections
- controlling timbre
- controlling texture
Number of lessons: 5
