In Year 2’s music lessons the children have been listening to the Carnival of Animals by Camille Saint-Saens. The children have really enjoyed listening to the pieces of music for each animal. We chose instruments that we thought would create a good ‘watery’ sound to create our own ‘Aquarium.’ Then we learnt a song called ‘We are Jellyfish’ and added our own watery intro and outro. We then recorded it using Audacity. The children had lots of fun and really enjoyed watching the sound waves appear on the screen as they sang and played their instruments.
