 MUSIC AT HOME:  PLASTIC (Charanga)

 

The following activities will keep you busy for a few weeks, so you can choose which order you do them in and keep going back for more:

 

Continue with our topic ‘Plastic’, on the Charanga page, under ‘Assignments’. Each week, I will add a step at a time on Charanga.

It helps you with many musical skills and also has a focus on raising awareness of the issue of plastic waste.  The project includes listening to music, researching issues around plastic, practising your rapping skills and even writing your own part to the song if you like.  It will take you a few weeks to complete all the activities, so I will add one step at a time: Step 1, Step 2, etc.

If you need help logging in to Charanga, please contact me via Music@st-helens-jun.essex.sch.uk and I will email you your log-in details. 

 

There are still many other activities on Charanga and I will keep adding to them, so keep checking.
