Listening to Music
This week we listened to 'Mars' by Gustav Holst. We appraised the music thinking about what we liked and disliked. We then went on to discuss the tempo, pulse and dynamics of this piece of classical music and what sort of films we might have heard it in.
We then watched a rocket take off and thought of how we could play instruments to create the noise of a rocket launch!

Challenge - can you remember what tempo, dynamics and pulse are?
