Soundscapes

This week the Year 7/8s worked with Matt Sephton (Anna's brother) to create and record different sounds.  First, we chose a picture from a selection.  We then thought about the sounds we would hear if we were in that scene.  Next, we thought about how we could create those sounds.  Each group had a session with Matt creating and recording their sounds around the school.

We uploaded our sounds to Soundtrap and created a soundscape.  Next, we used a video editing tool (such as WeVideo, YouTube or iMovie) to turn it into the finished product.  Here are some of our finished soundscapes.
