A scary dragon; a scary, nice dragon and in audio only; a gentle dragon.

Bees have been thinking about the different ways we respond to music. We have drawn pictures inspired by Fleetwood Mac's 'Albatross' and listened to Prokofiev's 'Peter and the Wolf'. We talked about the different instruments used to portray different creatures and made up movements to accompany each one, we also acted out some of the scenes. Our topic this term is 'Dragons and Drawbridges' so we thought we would try to compose some dragon motifs...

animal and insect portraits

Centipedes have also been listening to 'Peter and the Wolf' but we chose creatures as diverse as horses, mice, spiders and lions to inspire our music.
