Year 5 completed their Greek Topic in music with a short performance to parents last week. They sang and told the story of The Trojan Horse. This week to round up the topic, they composed music depicting the characteristics of Greek Gods while the rest of the class guessed who they were. They used the pentatonic scale, leitmotif (a little tune to depict a character), ostinato patterns and dynamics to represent the Gods.
