Year 1 Music

Hello Year 1,


I can see you have been learning about farm animals and zoo animals.


I thought you might like to listen to some lovely classical animal music.


Music can create pictures in your mind.


Close your eyes and listen really carefully to these pieces of music. Can you imagine the different animals moving around?


This music is from a collection called 'The carnival of the animals' by Saint-Saens. (He was a french composer)




♬ Camille SAINT-SAENS ♯The Carnival of the Animals (I): LION Royal March


♬ Camille Camille SAINT-SAENS ♯ Carnival of the Animals (V): THE ELEPHANT/L'éléphant

Elephant melody

♬ Camille SAINT-SAENS ♯ The Carnival of the Animals (IV): TORTOISES ]

You could start with 'The big ship sails on the alley-alley-oh'
