3/4M Haunted House And Character Compositions

This term grade 3&4 students have been adopting the role of composers. Their brief was to compose a number of short compositions that would ‘bring to life’ a character that they designed as well as their Tim Burton inspired ‘Haunted House’ and characters. To do this the students would learn to use a complex web based music creation tool Soundation.com. Soundation provides a palette of over 700 pre recorded sound samples. These consist of melodic, rhythmic and soundscape sounds. Soundation gives students agency over their creative ideas. They are able to experience success through arranging the numerous loops into a piece of music or soundscape that adds to the characterisation and atmosphere of their art work. To get more of an idea how Soundation works please go to the website and have a go. I am sure you will be amazed.

Grade 3/4 Students Adopting The Role OF DJ’s Through Incredibox

Incredibox.com is a fabulous online music creation tool. Using pre recorded loops it allows the students to adopt the role of DJ’s. This week grades 3/4 Bell PS students were set a task to arrange and compose a piece of music. They really needed to think about how to structure their music so that it made sense musically and not just some random number of loops. Before the students could record their song they needed to rehearse it so that they knew exactly when to bring in each part. Please click on the urls below to listen to some wonderful student creativity. And if you are moved by what you hear please post a comment. Perhaps you would like to go onto incredibox.com yourself and record your own song and post the url in the comment box to share with the students.

Grade 1/2 Animal Raps (2014)

This term grade 1/2 students have been focussing on rhythm and rhyme. Linking in with their Dr Suess inspired art the students learnt a simple rhyme called Cat Rap. Each grade then collaboratively created a Hip Hop backing track in Garageband. Next the student as a whole class co-wrote a introduction describing their favourite animal. Students were then sent off in small collaborative groups to compose two short rhymes about an animal of their choice. Each group then had to rehearse so that they could recite their rap in time to the backing track. Each group was then recorded over the top of the backing track to create their Animal Rap. We hope you enjoy them.

Grade 1/2 monster sketches

Over the past three weeks the Grade 1/2s have looked at Sendak’s book Where the wild things are and have been creating hand puppets inspired by the illustrations. We started out with some developmental sketches. Students then picked their favourite image and made that into their hand puppet. Here are a few snaps of their wonderful sketches – enjoy!

Tim Burton inspired character sketches

Sometimes it’s nice to see the development of a work, rather than just the finished piece. These developmental sketches draw by the Year 3/4s are exquisite artworks in their own right. The students really captured Burton’s aesthetic and style. Watch this space for their final portraits… coming soon!
