Music

Our unit this term is:  The Carnival of the Animals

 

We are going to be using this piece of music by Camille Saint Saens.

 

We will find out how the composer used the musical elements to describe each of the animals in the carnival.

Track 1 - Which animal do you think this is? Why? Try to use musical vocabulary...

Try Track 2. Which animal is it? Why do you think that?

Here's Track 3. What animal do you think the composer is describing?

This is the last Track. You should be getting good at this now! What animal is it? Why?

DON'T PEEK at the answers before you try the guessing game.

 

It's not about being absolutely right.

 

Could you pick up on the musical clues Saint Saens gave us to recognise a big animal, or a slow animal?

Track 1 - Lion.  Could you hear him roar?
Track 2 - Hens.  They were scratching and pecking.
Track 3 - Fish (or Aquarium).  This was tricky!
Track 4 - Birds. Could you hear the high flute?

Were you rightClose?  Or nowhere near?

Don't worry!  We will be listening to more animals by Camille Saint Saens in the next few weeks...

Next time, we will be finding out more about Camille Saint Saens himself...
