Mr McEnroe

Miss Plested

Welcome to Year 3/4

Our topic this term is

Our wow starter!

Music and moods! Famous songs from children’s films.

Film clips from Disney with music for emotions;



‘The Bear and the Piano'

The bear's piano playing makes him a huge star, but he misses the friends and family he has left behind. Could it be that money and celebrity are not everything?

We will write:

Letters of advice,

Short news-reports,

Writing in role,



 Information posters


How loud can it get?!

The children will be introduced to our topic on Sound through the Stomp theatre musical.  They will have the opportunity to investigate vibration by using tuning forks and rice!



We will investigate how animals, including humans, hear sound and whether the shape and size of our ears affects how we hear sound.



We will design and make our own musical instruments to investigate volume, pitch and the link between volume and distance.



The children will have conversations through a string telephone to begin our exploration on how sound needs a medium to travel through.

Key Vocabulary

Sound   ear   vibration  pitch   volume  loud  quiet  tuning fork travel  medium   hear



Design Technology

Make some noise!!

Children will design, make and evaluate a musical instrument.


The children will them perform as one big orchestra!





If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands….


Use my voice and my actions to express feeling and to describe sounds- Make up and perform a class song to the tune of if you’re happy and you know it... If you’re angry? Sad? Excited?

Classical music and emotions; How do you feel? What makes you feel?


The orchestra! Children will find out about the different families within an orchestra!

Instruments of the orchestra

Strings, Woodwind, Brass, Percussion







Who am I and Where do I Belong?

We will start by looking at ourselves as individuals and talk about what we feel has shaped us, including family, school, activity groups and in some cases religion and belief.



We will consider the groups we belong to and how they enrich our lives



and discover how religion enriches the lives of many.




Through playing class games, developing awareness posters and research we will look at the responsibilities we have in our own communities and the wider World community.
