This is part of my resources for Caribbean music, focusing on Calypso and Salsa. I'll upload the other genres soon. There&'s the revision guide for each topic as well as the main musical resource for each. I recorded and programmed the Salsa one on logic but could only upload MP3 so I&';ve done a version where you can hear each instrument being added gradually. This works really well in collaboration with the score provided. The tracks for the listening test can be found at the bottom of the test. The Presi is what I used to deliver it - hopefully the youtube parts work! Comments please!
A3 poster outlining some (basic) key features found in 6 different Caribbean styles of music (Merengue, Bachata, Reggae, Calypso, Cha-cha-cha and Salsa).<br />
I designed this poster for an advanced GCSE class who wanted to learn more styles of Caribbean music. Obviously a lot of the points (e.g. instruments) are the same and therefore I have not always repeated these. Instead I tried to put just the key elements or the instruments that stand out the most.<br />
My GCSE class then used this poster to help them identify the style and country of origin of music excerpts in short listening quizzes. <br />
My class really enjoyed using this resource and said that the visuals really helped for revision to, I therefore thought that maybe some other pupils/teachers may also like to use it.
By clicking the website link, you will find a range of activities to teach young pupils or students with severe learning difficulties to play the chime bars.
I have used these activities with a great number of my SEN students and they worked well for most of them as long as they could recognise / match colours.
Please feel free to contact me if you require more sheet music using the chime bars colour scheme.
<p>A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.</p>
This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
