New Music Lesson

Do you remember the start of the story called Tiddalik the Frog?  To help you remember, watch the story video in our previous lesson.  Now we will explore the end of the story by listening to BBC School Radio Tiddalik the Frog Lesson 2 https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/music-ks1-tiddalik-the-frog-2/zv83y9q .  Try these activities:

  • Watch the tutorial video and listen to “Oh dear! The streams are all dry!”.  What did you like or dislike about the song?  Can you hear the bouncy notes?  Can you hear the smooth notes?
  • Watch the story video and try the story questions.
  • Join in with singing the song while watching the full vocal version.
  • Listen to "In the hall of the Mountain King" from “Peer Gynt” by watching the video at the bottom of the page.  This music is about a young man called Peer who is captured by trolls.  When he runs away, the trolls chase him.  Can you hear the musicians playing short, bouncy notes?  Can you hear when they play more smoothly?  How else does the music change?
