Electro Acoustic Project

On Friday 17th March we visited Firth Hall at the University to perform our poem. We also heard the recorded version of the poem with sound effects.

In between rehearsals and the performance we had chance to add our feelings about the project to a working wall.

Year 4 Times Table Competition

Today we launched our times table competition with the help of Mr Sieczkarek and Miss French. Both Jade and Amber class took part to win the cherished Times Table Trophy. Our team of contestants were Braden, Julia, Aia and Khadija. There was  theme music and buzzers! After taking the lead early on Jade Class went behind after the quick fire buzzer round. Yohane in Amber class was astoundingly quick on the buzzer! Well done to Amber Class on your victory today.

Electro Acoustic Music Project with Sheffield University

First we worked with Georgina from Sheffield Girls High School to make sounds using everyday objects.

IMG_1527

The next week we recorded sounds we could hear around school.

The next week we learnt a poem and added sounds and actions.

The Rubbish Tip Alien by Pie Corbett

Sitting on the tip,
quite quickly.
Choosing bit by bit,
quite slickly.

Hip hop hap
It’s the alien rap

Tractor wheels for eyes,
turn lazy.
Dustbin lids for ears,
creak crazy.

Hip hop hap
It’s the alien rap

Freezer for a head,
stares coldly.
Bedspring for a tongue,
juts boldly.

Hip hop hap
It’s the alien rap

Car grill for a mouth,
turns fiery.
Hoover for a nose,
burns wiry.

Hip hop hap
It’s the alien rap

This week we visited the University

We recorded our poem in a recording studio!

Then we manipulated the sounds we recorded around school on a computer programme called ‘Audacity’

This week at school we haven’t just  been looking at staying safe online but at other aspects of keeping safe.

 

Here are a few comments from Jade class about the activities.

   “During safety week with Miss Caudwell we learned about peer pressure. Peer pressure can be spoken or unspoken. There are lots of different ways peer pressure can happen like ‘the huddle’, ‘the put down’, and ‘the look’. We did some drama to investigate peer pressure.”

 Jamie-Leigh Plant

“During safety week with Mr Little were learned about being safe online. We learned never to give out personal details like your name and address and where you go to school. It was a fun experience!”

Samuel Azikiwe

“During safety week with Miss Croxall we made movies of how to be safe on the internet.”

Magdalena Cycak.

“During safety week with Miss Roberts we learned about water safety. We circled around dangers of water. We also wrote a paragraph of how to stay safe around water. Finally, we created a power point.”

Cayle Nussey
