We have been continuing our musical learning in our Studio Room. We have been playing new games on our interactive board that teach us music.
We have our very own interactive piano. The piano keys are displayed on the board and we use our musical skills to play the notes to make our sounds. We have been learning that the colours represent the notes. When you play a long note it has a long block of colour and a short note produces a small colour. When we play the piano scale, it will make a rainbow of colour notes. We have very much enjoyed this.
The next game we have is blob opera. It’s a very funny game that teaches us about singing in different pitches, the longer the blob goes the higher the note he sings. We can even take the blobs on tour over the world stages. We can record the blobs singing and listen back to what operatic song we made.
Finally, we have the paint with music game. This game teaches us to paint with sound. We can choose from a range of instruments and make our marks across the screen. This combines sound with mark making encouraging children to make music following our marks. We can select from different canvases to create our paint with music.
We have very much enjoyed exploring music in this way, bringing music to life for our learners.
