Year 7 Keyboard Skills booklet

Year 7 Keyboard Skills booklet

This booklet introduces Year 7 students to the basics of keyboard skills. It starts out with identifying where the notes are on the keyboard before moving onto performing 5-note melodies using semibreves, crotchets and minims. After this students move on to learn 3 major chords followed by performing songs which uses both chords and melody. The booklet is divided up into 8 work cards with each one increasing in difficulty. Students all start on work card 1 and when they are ready they show their teacher for assessment- if successful the teacher can sign the assessment page allowing them to move on to the next card. I use this as a 6 week project in year 7 with students having each lesson to work on their card and try to progress as high as they can. I give them rewards for reaching certain cards to keep them motivated.

Noise Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Synonyms Sound Science English

Noise Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Synonyms Sound Science English

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Noise’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

This is the Unfamiliar Music section of the test You may wish to work through this as a class or use as a homework tool for pupils. The booklet is 16 pages long so is not a one lesson activity.

They are: Music of Broadway 1950s to 1990s. Rock music of 1960s and 1970s. Film and computer gaming music 1990s to present. Pop music 1990s to present. Each listening activity will require a link to YouTube. I have given the key phrases pupils should search along with a thumbnail of the video to ensure they pick the correct video.
