I would love some feedback on these initial schemes of work for each year in KS3. The year 7 work is learning about Elements but through learning to play an instrument and playing music. The year 8's start with Blues as an extension to the end of year 7, and the year 9's are being explicitly shown how to play i.e. receiving instrumental lessons.
All comments are welcome; if you DOWNLOAD this then PLEASE leave a comment. Many thanks.
This is a workshop leaflet I ran with some simple samba rhythms suitable for junk orchestra. Also, ideas on how to set up a junk orchestra and where to get the "instruments" from. I hope its of use.
Enjoy as the pupils love playing junk.
PS - ear defenders may be needed!
Add a dash of cross curricular magic to your classroom with this space-themed song. Your pupils will have great fun learning the science as they sing about the weird and wonderful effects of a black hole upon objects, light and even time.<br />
Meanwhile, they’ll simultaneously be improving their team singing skills.<br />
The pack includes a vocal demo’ a full backing track, fun lyrics, a keyboard lead sheet and optional, beginner level parts for school orchestra. A showstopper for your space themed assembly.<br />
