This term, Year 3 has worked with Mr Speck to create their own piece of music. Entitled 'Earth',
We were inspired by the work of Hans Zimmer, a trailblazing composer who has written and arranged music for film, stage and TV. He has written his own piece of music called 'Earth' which you can listen to at bbc.co.uk.
Our music starts with a 'shimmer'; perhaps we are looking at earth from far away or imagining the sunlight as it hits the deep oceans and seas of our planet. Then, we create busy sounds that represent the life and movement of Earth; people moving around, flocks of birds and shoals of fish, and the life inside our forests. After that, you will hear musical motifs that the children composed in small groups. Can you hear rain, wind, mountains, valleys and other landscapes in the sounds we are making? Finally, our pieces are drawn to a conclusion with a final 'shimmer'.
Well done to all the pupils and teachers for their excellent work.
