"Listen, listen..."

I had some fab lessons with year 1 this week using the song "Listen, listen" to distinguish between pulse and rhythm.

Have a listen as they sing the song and mark the pulse on the drum.

Here you can listen to the class tap out the rhythm. They used their thinking voice to help them.

The children wer able to mark the pulse on the lyrics by drawing a heart in the right place. using our pitch staircase a few children were able to work out the tune from the numbers!

There are some exceptionally talented children in Merton! Well done year 1! And a big thank you to the grown ups who helped me assess!
