The students made the following prints:

Session 3 - 'patterns'

The main objective of this session was to engage students with making patterns that can be converted into music.  Dabbing on a grid is similar to adding notes to a manuscript;  punching holes in music box cards help to develop fine motor skills.

Here are some pictures of work in progress:

The main objective of this session was to engage students with playing/initiating sound.  Pupils played the Talking Tiles in place of guitar for our welcome-song, then used the tiles to collect recordings of themselves playing the outside instruments.

Here are some pictures of pupils playing and recording the outside instruments:
