Year 3 children have been beginning to apply their understanding of chord progressions, melody, and lyrics to compose using ‘ostinato’ or repetitive musical phrases. We then have shared our learning by teaching some of the compositions to the whole class.
We then worked to compose a second part or ‘chorus’ as a whole-class, which related to the first. We put the two phrases together creating an ‘ABA’ pattern song, or ‘verse-chorus-verse’. We are now working to use a wide range of dynamics (volumes) in our performance of our class songs.
We hope you enjoy one of our favourite Year 3 songs ‘You are beautiful’!
