Music GCSE Key-Word Revision Sessions [Crosswords & Games] (Exam Preparation)

Music GCSE Key-Word Revision Sessions [Crosswords & Games] (Exam Preparation)

This revision session is designed for GCSE Music teachers who want to lead revision sessions focussed on key-words and literacy. The download features:-A full PowerPoint to guide the session (with a starter, objectives, main task, a game, & AfL)-A colourful and fun double-sided worksheet (with 2 x key-word crosswords)-A teacher’s answersheetIt serves as a fun and relaxed way for students to revise key-words and allows you to gauge their knowledge of key-words based on how fast they can complete the task.Ideally, you should have a time where students work alone at first (so that you can gauge their level of knowledge) and then co-operatively (in pairs) so that they can learn.All activities in this session are focussed on key-words so if you feel your students need to revise key-words this is the perfect resource for them!

I planned this lesson to teach KS3 how to use hooks and riffs in popular song. This works well when showing how Ed Sheeran uses a loop pedal and layers short ideas to create a full song.This worksheet includes notation for the riffs, 2 additional layers (harmony and bassline) and the hook. There is also a grid of 9 tasks which students can opt for.
