A simple cover lesson for music when you're on a course or a poorly person! Only resources required are A4 plain paper and colouring pencils. Everybody's happy!
Helpful for teaching major scales and improving fingering on the keyboard.
On my travels as a KS2 and KS3 music teacher I have developed these posters to help children recognise what level they are working at. I encourage children to refer to them as often as possible and they went down well with OFSTED recently. I hope someone else finds them helpful! :0)
I have developed this sheet for use with Year 5 and 6 children but it could be used easily in Year 7. I have based it on the target sheets that children use in their exercise books in literacy and numeracy. Each 'I can&' sentence is taken from the Attainment Targets for Level 3 and 4 in Music.
Helpful for teaching basic chord patterns and tonic and dominant. Also good for practising fingering on the keyboard.
This is a powerpoint to be played whilst introducing the new artist of the month. You will need to choose a Monkees song to with it. I ask children to listen to the song and then afterwards to share with a partner what they thought about the song and why. Their partner then shares their opinion with the class. OFSTED loved this as a starter. For the rest of the month I just choose another song to listen to and compare and contrast. the kids love it and often go away and research or prepare a powerpoint for me! :0)
