Today in Music year 3 have been learning about Pentatonic scales. We listened to a piece of Music from China that used a Pentatonic scale then composed our own pieces in groups using the xylophones and the boom whackers. The children really enjoyed the composition and worked very hard. They were able to perform these to the class at the end of the lesson.
Comment below: What are Pentatonic Scales? Can you create your own Pentatonic composition at home? We used the notes C, D, E, G, A.
