Year 3s have been exploring instruments. We've been listening to how they sound, looking at how they are played and enjoying listening to different orchestral pieces. We have also being playing games challenging ourselves to identify the instruments by just their sound or a description about them.
For one of our activities different groups were given an instrument they had to describe. We then read them out and tried to guess what they were. Once we had done that we chose to put those description into PicCollage and create a little poster about the instruments. Here are some we made...
We have really enjoyed some awesome YouTube videos of different orchestra pieces, have a watch and listen to these.
It's been great exploring orchestra music!
