Reception - High or Low?

Reception Music Lessons

Children in Reception have been looking at how music is written out. They have learnt how to read rhythms, and now are starting to explore musical pitch.

We are using Boomwhackers and bells to explore high sounds and low sounds, and looking at how written music shows high and low!

Do you think the big red Boomwhackers would make a higher or lower sounds than the small purple ones?

When music is written down, we use 5 lines called a stave. It is like a ladder. The higher up the ladder the notes, the higher the pitch. 

We also play a warm up game called the 'Elevator Song'.
