This unit develops children's ability to recognise how sounds and instruments can be used expressively and combined to create music in response to a stimulus.
During this unit, children explore how sounds can be changed, combined and organised to create a class composition. They respond to stimuli suggested by the weather and explore ways in which sounds can be used expressively. They record their compositions using pictures, symbols and words.
This unit should be revisited during the key stage using different stimuli, eg the fairground.
