HAZEL CLASS BECOME ROCK STARS!

This term, we have been learning about life and society have changed since the 1930s. 

This term, we have been learning about life and society have changed since the 1930s.  The children have learned about developments in electronic equipment, fashion, culture and art.  This week they thought about the music in the 1950s and 1960s and learned about some of the famous music bands of the time.  They learned about the influence The Beatles had on the world of music and the difference between the “mods” and the “rockers”.

They were then shown a range of different record covers and analysed what they had on them and how they were different from the digital downloaded music of the present day.  They then set to work on transforming themselves in solo stars, pop duos or a band and designed their own record cover for their own band.  They had to think about their band name, potential hits they could write and how they would produce their own record cover.  They had so much fun designing their work and thinking which type of artist they would become!

After producing superb art work, they made their work personalised by adding a photograph of them as performers.  We had an array of costumes, props and instruments as well to enhance their work!

Hazel Class most definitely can be called “Superstars” after this lesson!

Here are our album cover photographs and a sample of our wonderful work.

Well done children!
