Baroque period music: Vivaldi Gloria in D Gloria in Excelsis

Use the link to watch and listen to the piece by Vivaldi:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVyRd9mlGyQ

(Parents please take care when using links with Youtube – you may wish to watch it first)

  1. What instruments can you spot in the orchestra?

 

This piece has lots of dynamic (volume) changes.  Can you now use the following link and follow the score of the music?:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNLDou-uChQ&safe=active

Watch again to see if you can spot these letters underneath some of the notes: p/ mf/ f.   These tell the singer/ player about the dynamic to use.

P = quiet/ soft;           mf = moderately loud;          f = loud

  1. Can you sing/ play a tune and someone in your family conducts you using p/mf/f telling you where to change dynamics?   Or
  2. Write down your own song/ tune/ a song you know and write underneath the dynamics for someone else to follow?

MUSIC: Use YouTube to Listen to Pachelbel Canon . Ask the children to comment on what they liked/disliked.  What instruments could they hear? Were the sounds long/short? Were there lots of flurries (or trills) or were the notes long and smooth? Where the rhythms fast/slow?  What were the dynamics like?  How was the mix of instruments – did it make a good timbre?

How to ensure your child is doing the correct level of challenge in their work.

 

When the children are away from school the Year 3 team will regularly be posting work for children to do at home.

 

All the work will be differentiated so that work is suitable for the children.

 

More than one level of difficulty may be included on one print out pdf.

 

Broadly speaking, children who are behind the National Curriculum level of study will do the Confidence Building Work and 1 Star * Sheets.

 

Children who are at the National Curriculum level of study but behind expectations should work on 1 Star * Sheets.

 

Those children working at expected standards should work on 2 Star ** Sheets.

 

Those exceeding would work on 3 Star *** Sheets.

 

The mid-year reports from Parents Consultations will give you guidance as to which work your children should do.

 

Of course, different bits of work may need to be adjusted to your child’s confidence level.

3GS Report Writing Survey.

 

Each year to help in report writing I have asked the children in my classes complete a short survey about their year.  This way I can make sure when writing their reports include as much about their accomplishments and experiences as possible.

 

I would be grateful if you could support your child if needed in completing this survey.

The results are completely confidential and will be forwarded to my school email address.
