Junior Infants have been exploring loud and soft sounds in music. We have been identifying sounds that are loud and soft in our environment, we have also been using loud and soft voices. We talked about times when we use loud or soft voices. On Friday, we took out the instrument box and read the story The King's Magical Musical Box. We identifed instruments as shakers, tappers and scrapers. The king collected up all of the sounds into his magical musical box (that Maedbh had designed for teacher a few years ago!) The volume of music depended on how much the king/queen opened the box!
