Year 2 Music lesson plan - Graphic Scores

Year 2 Music lesson plan - Graphic Scores

Included is a 3-week lesson plan based on children playing a range of percussion instruments following a graphic score. The planning highlights the Year 2 National Curriculum objectives, lesson objectives, teaching and assessment points. These lessons can be easily adapted and extended to last up to a full half term; this will depend on how quickly the children grasp the idea and understanding of graphic scores. I have also attached the PDF graphic scores, which I used and were a big help! These were taken from traditionalprimarymusic.com The children loved these musical lessons and developed some very good group work and co-ordination skills. Following the teaching and practise, they were able to create their own graphic score by the end of the unit.
