Class 7 have been exploring sound colours and ‘painting with sounds’ during music. After first listening to pieces of music and then creating pictures that reflect what they hear, they moved onto creating their own music. The picture below is called ‘Sunset Over The Sea’ and the children were asked to imagine they were stood in an art gallery looking at it – what sounds would they hear in their heads?[audio:http://www.holytrinityhalstead.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/sunsetoverthesea.mp3|titles=Sunset Over The Sea by Class 7 Holy Trinity Halstead]
As you can hear from this recording of them performing, the children were inspired by the layers of sand, sea and sky.
