Welcome to Ash Class 2017/2018 We hope you enjoy looking at all the fun learning we are doing!
*** *** Ash Class 2016/2017 below *** ***
Our project for this week is 'Take One Piece' we are looking at the performance: In the Hall Of The Mountain King from Peer Gynt by Edvard Grieg. Its really exciting and it gets very loud! After listening to the piece of music once we wrote from our own imaginations - some very scary stories. This afternoon we have learnt a lot of new musical words to describe volume (dynamics), repeated rhythm (ostinato), speed (tempo) and tone (timbre) of the music.
Please have a listen to the music on the BBC: http://bbc.in/1zmKlzH
The Karate Kid
The kid starts by punching,
Followed by some kicking,
His opponent attacks but the kid did some blocking,
The kid, jumping forwards,
Bouncing up and down.
The kid sparing, pounding his opponent ...
down to the ground!
