Soundscape

Welcome to Soundscape: London Thames.

Soundscape is a specially commissioned three minute piece of music embedded with sound effects that reflect the River Thames and London. This is a cross-curricular resource suitable for use in KS1 and KS2 and can be adapted for EYFS. The core activity is to stimulate children’s imagination through sound alone, and encourage them to respond creatively in a range of ways across art and literacy.

There are three ways to play the music in the presentations:
Presentation One: Plays the music with the sound effects embedded but no images.
Presentation Two: Plays the music with the sound effects embedded and images.
Presentation Three: Plays the music without the sound effects or images.

There are follow-up lesson plans for music and dance, and a tool kit of extension ideas in literacy, geography and history. It is adaptable for the requirements of any class and could also be used as a whole school project.

We’d be delighted to see examples of your class’s work so please scan and email them to us via the Contact page.
