This month, year 5 have been linking their music work to their topic on the Romans.
They have learnt to sing songs related to Romans including ‘Just like a Roman’ and the ‘Road Building’ Song
The children have also been learning about Roman fanfares. They’ve talked about instrumentation and rhythm used and have composed their own on chime bars using ‘C E and G’
In addition, they have been learning musical terms such as dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, pitch and duration. Once learnt, they will be able to apply them to compositions and performances.
