Year 5 - Music in our Community

Date: 18th Mar 2024 @ 9:27am

This half-term, Year 5 have been working to answer the question 'How Does Music Teach Us About Our Community?'. We have discussed heroes in our community; from our parents and carers to people who volunteer to help the homeless - we agreed that they were all heroes in their own right.

In what was one of our favourite lessons we listened to and appraised the Star Wars theme composed by John Williams - and with our keen musical ears we suggested, researched and discovered that he had composed some of the scores for our favourite films including Home Alone and Indiana Jones!

Discussions have raised how much music can affect our emotions and attitudes and how much a piece of music can be used to help us think of a particular place, person or event within our community. Our challenge now is to think about a piece of music that could describe Boundary or even Grange Park!
