Children should learn to identify criteria for their design, to select tools and materials and use correct vocabulary to name and describe them, to assemble, join and combine materials to make a winding mechanism and to understand the need for a stable structure to support a mechanism. This is lesson 3 in a unit of work.
Children should learn to use existing fabric designs as inspiration for their own pattern-making, to develop and communicate their design ideas through drawing and modelling and to make and/or use a simple paper pattern/template. This is lesson 3 in a unit of work.
This is a test which I used at the end of a unit of work based on the families of instruments in the orchestra. The work included finding out how the instrument makes its sound and where it fits into the orchestra. I included live performancess on those instruments that I play, alongside prerecorded examples from a variety of composers. The answers are given on the last sheet.
Every two years, our school puts on a Summer Carnival where each year group gives a performance based around a different country. Last year, Year 3's country was Japan. The children learnt how to sing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' in Japanese. They also performed a contemporary dance and wore traditional Japanese clothes and accessories. It was a fantastic event and the children loved every minute of it. I have uploaded the lyrics in case you would like to try something similar at your school.

Great at the front of the classroom, outside the library or in the school hall for assembly, the iPhone Music Class Display is an excellent way of sharing what music we are listening to!
Once the display is laminated, simply print and tack a photo of the musician or album cover onto the centre of the display. Additionally, you can easily write the artist's or band's name using a whiteboard marker underneath.
Pupils really look forward to seeing new music each week. I have worked with teachers that have used this resource to promote positive behaviour, with certain pupils each week being in charge of selecting the class music!
Any feedback is greatly appreciated and I hope that you enjoy this resource!
