Composing in Years 2 and 3

In years 2 and 3 we have been composing this week. Our compositions retell the story of three sleepy birds, who once they are awake become cheeky and start to laugh. Then they go back to sleep, before spotting a cupcake which they want to eat.

We have been using a wide range of dynamics (volume) and tempo (speed) to tell the story. We’ve also used our voices, pitched and un-pitched instruments and (in Year 3) major and minor chords.

We hope you enjoy listening to our pieces, can you tell which part of the story we are retelling?
