Spring 1 - Playlist
What’s that noise? A bash? A crash? A shake, a rattle or a low, bass hum? Which do you prefer – an acoustic singer or a booming brass band? A solitary voice singing sweetly and quietly or a magnificent choir lifting the roof? Take out your ear plugs as you journey through the valley of sound and find out about instruments, the sounds they make and how they are produced. Discover how sounds are made and which sounds travel the furthest. Then, sing up and compose a class song for the local talent contest, Class Factor. Can you write a number one hit? Be sure to stand up straight, warm up your voice and sing your heart out. When your performance is done, sit back and listen to calming classical melodies, a soothing lullaby or your favourite boy band ballad. Can you hear me over there? Or do I need to TALK MORE LOUDLY?
Class Novel - Poems to Perform – Julia Donaldson
This rich and varied collection of both classic and contemporary verse includes poems for just two voices, poems for groups to recite together, and poems which are perfect for performing as a whole class. Some are conversations between characters as diverse as a teacher and a pupil, a goblin and a nymph, and a tree and a pool. At the back of the book, aspiring performers will find Donaldson's own tips and ideas for how each poem could be performed.
