As part of a topic about civil rights called Fighting for Freedom, year 6 children were challenged to compose two pieces of music using Sonic Pi. One would embody the feeling of oppression and captivity and the other freedom. They would then be asked to perform, using live coding, a single continuous piece that starts with their oppression composition and moves gradually into their freedom composition. This resource contains a rough outline plan of the unit and all of the smartnotebooks for each of the lessons. The smartnotebooks also link to screencasts that show how to do all of the Sonic Pi programming. Link to youtube video showing the live coding of one pair of students
Duration: (Half term of music and computing lessons)
Teaches: (KS2 computing and music POS)
