Listening to music | Performing music | Listening to your surroundings | Singing | Make and create

Infant-MAH-webTo start your home-learning we have prepared these five tasks...

1. Listening to music

Choose a song to listen to (or get an adult to choose one)...

  • Draw a picture of what you think of
  • Write down some musical words about what you hear. Have a discussion about whether the music is fast or slow, if you can hear any singing etc...

2. Performing

Watch the video below and have a go at singing and playing along


3. Listening to your surroundings

If you can, go outside into your garden or even just open the window...

  • What sounds can you hear?
  • Draw a picture of what you hear, and don't be afraid to use your imagination!
  • Think about what sort of music would go with what you hear...

4. Singing

Make up a song about washing your hands. You can use a well-known tune or come up with one of your own. Get someone to time how long it takes to sing whilst you actually wash your hands.


5. Make and create

Watch the video below about making homemade instruments. Choose one to make and then create a piece of music using loud and soft sounds, and going at fast and slow speeds.
