Gladiator Music


This week, we've been learning all about the Roman gladiators. In English, we have written narrative poems about gladiators, focusing on our use of features such as alliteration and personification. In Music, we've been listening to music from films about gladiators. We listened to live music, as well as recordings, and enjoyed sharing our ideas about what story the music was telling us.

After that, it was our turn! In groups, we used both a range of instruments and sounds we made using our hands and feet to create our own gladiator piece of music. Through our use of pitch, volume and textures, we had to tell a story about a gladiator and then perform our rehearsed piece to the rest of the class. We really enjoyed listening to each others' creative music!
