I have been very proud of the attitude of the students this term as some music restrictions are still in place.
Year 3 children have been learning about pitch and how to follow a graphic score, related to pitch, using chime bars.
They understand that the smaller the musical instrument, the higher the pitch.
In addition they have begun to recognise the pitch of notes on a stave and that if a note is written on the bottom line it has a lower pitch than the note written on the top line.
Each child has two or three chimebars so they have to select when it’s their turn to play a particular note. This helps them to internalise rhythms and pulse.
