Y4 Writing Music: Staves and Musical Notations

As Musicians, we in Year 4 have been getting to grips with writing our preferred compositions onto a stave using musical notations. Firstly, we learnt how to draw the Treble Clef which we were determined to get right!

We then recapped some prior learning of the crochets, minims and semibreves and the value that each of these notes represent.

We then recapped the purpose and utilisation of rests within musical notation.

Once we had familiarised ourselves with whereupon the stave the musical notations needed to be placed, we as Musicians then began writing our own individual ‘Ostinato’ compositions.
