1 Recording 'The Sound Collector'

Activity: Creating

Show children the video from YouTube of the famous poem by Roger McGough 'The Sound Collector'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyA-VmmlWmw

Explain that there are no sounds on this particular video and they are going to be sound 'treasure hunters' and locate as many of these sounds as possible.

Also explain they are going to create a recording of the poem and then insert the sounds at the right point.

NB You could insert the sounds at the wrong points to make a comedy example if you were feeling particularly renegade!

Student Instructions

Watch the video with your teacher.

Make a list of sounds collected by 'The Sound Collector'.
