Year 5 composers

Year 5 took advantage of the lovely weather this afternoon to work outside and compose music using Garageband. Their music has been composed to accompany the plays that they will write to tell the story of Shackleton’s expedition to the Antarctic. They thought really carefully about how different moods can be created through music and read different parts of the story to be able to choose the mood that they needed to reflect through their music. Using the technology on Garageband, Year 5 created some slow and sad pieces of music, lively and happy pieces of music and even some scary pieces to reflect the different stages of Shackleton’s incredible journey.
