Listen to the theme music from Harry Potter. Cut out the description cards and choose the ones which best describe the music.  Save the other cards for other music you might get to listen to!


Sometimes the music is soft (piano)


I can hear the crashing of drums

A guitar is playing

This music is terrifying

The mood of this music is mysterious 


I can hear an orchestra

This music has the same dynamics (how loud) all the way through 

I can hear bell like sounds

Sometimes the music is strong (forte)

This music sounds very jolly


Draw a picture or doodle as you listen to the music.

Use teddy bears or figures to move around to the music. 

Make your own magic wand and dance to the music.

Read something from one of the Harry Potter books together.

Can you remember any dance moves which we started to learn? Remember to use extended arms and legs (if you have the space)! Could you perform part of it to other members of your household or involve them in the dance?  Add your own moves and have fun.

Why not practise your rhythm (ta and ti ti) and pitch this week with these interactive resources? I like the free piano!

Have a go at making your own music on “incredibox” if you like technology and beatboxing. You just tap on the different faces and they make cool beat boxing sounds! Or, if you like stories, listen to The Hansel and Gretel Opera. You could make up a song about your own favourite story.


Week 3 Music


Choose any of the activities from week 2, 3 or 4. You will recognise Tony Chestnut found on week 3.  Why not try learning the other 2 tapping games as well?
