Have a go at creating your own graphic score!

Keep changing your drawing to see how it sounds different!


For ICT, if you have access to a computer, I would like you to open Microsoft Word (or pages if you use a Mac at home) and use the shapes tools to create a colourful poster.

I would like it to have a rainbow theme or it could be about thanking the NHS.

If you don't have a computer, why not try it on paper. You could stick the finished posters in your windows at home for people to see as they walk past. Make it as bright and colourful as you can.
