Grade 3 and 4 in Music and Art

Music and Art is being combined this term for Grade 3/4 students.

Grade 3 Map Making Project

The Grade 3 students will be working on a map making unit this term, which will combine their art and music skills. This unit will enable students to explore and experiment with visual and musical art techniques within a cartography project. During this project, students will have the opportunity to collaboratively create a map artwork, which showcases their spatial skills and their ability to compose a score to express the themes of the map. Students will learn about the relationship between images and sound and how the two components can be manipulated to create a narrative with continuity. The project is heavily driven by collaboration, enabling students to execute a joint creative vision, by working together to problem-solve, develop their ideas, share their ideas and to produce a finished artefact by the end of the unit. The project will culminate in a celebration of student learning. At assembly, the Bell Primary School Community will be invited to see the students’ performance artwork involving the map, live music score and story.

Grade 4 Stop Animation Project

This unit will enable students to explore and experiment with visual and musical art techniques within a stop animation medium. During this project, students will have the opportunity to create a film which showcases their animation skills and their ability to compose a score. Students will learn about the relationship between images and sound and how the two components can be manipulated to create a stop animation film with continuity. The project is heavily driven by collaboration, enabling students to execute a joint creative vision, by working together to problem-solve, develop their ideas, share their ideas and to produce a finished artefact by the end of the unit. Students will be required to contemplate their learning by means of ongoing reflection and a self-assessment rubric. The project will culminate in a celebration of student learning, through an arts event in which the Bell Primary School Community will be invited to a screening night to view the films and the process works.

  1. I love the idea of combining both forms of art! The stop animation films will be a must see and we can’t wait to watch the grade 3’s performances at assembly.
