Musical workout for pupils
Teachers and Year 2 pupils from Cantref Primary School were put through their paces when they took part in a road safety music inset course devised by Bob Young, a retired teacher.
Rhythm was explored using cut out vehicles laid out as a musical phrase as children clapped time to ‘red lorry yellow lorry’.
Recorded traffic sounds tested listening skills, and children used vocal chords to imitate sirens and revving engines. Songs were sung and words substituted with percussion instruments.
Warning signs became an exercise in pitch, lending themselves to a form of musical notation with gradient and bridge signs representing scales of high and low notes.
This unique interpretation of music was augmented with robust road safety messages.
