Someone else on here had the brilliant idea of 'When Dr Who met Handel' which inspired me to make up a few more (not only composers but also a few jazz / pop artists, fitting in with black history month and 12 bar blues)
My year 10 class produced some amazing powerpoint presentations - it forced them to research the genres / eras / composers / artists (well, ok they probably looked on wikipedia!) and then create some fantastically funny stories for homework!
Hope some of you find it similarly useful for a homework or cover lesson etc :-)
This is done for Handel but could be easily amended to suit other set works. I love this homework because it makes pupils think; pupils hated this homework because it meant they had to think! You can really tell which pupils have taken the time to find out about Handel and his character from what they have written. Hopefully this way they will remember the facts they researched!
This is a thoughtful song about the stories and history of castles. I hope it will provoke discussion about what castles were used for and about how they are portrayed in stories as well as their role in our documented history.
This song is based on the popular story by Michael Rosen: We're Going On A Bear Hunt. It closely follows the text of the original story and is suitable for listening to or singing along to. Text (c) 1989 Michael Rosen From WE'RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT written by Michael Rosen & illustrated by Helen Oxenbury. Reproduced by permission of Walker Books Ltd, London SE115HJ www.walker.co.uk
