In music this half term we have been finding out about the composer Alan Menken.
We looked at his composition of Aladdin.
Firstly we read the story of Aladdin. We then listened to the music and tried to imagine which part of the story the music would fit with.
We sequenced the story in groups and talked about the music.
We then watched a large orchestra performing the music and looked at all of the different instruments.
Later we wrote a list of adjectives on a magic carpet which described how we felt when we heard the music.
We designed our own magic carpets and a huge class magic carpet after looking at different designs.
