Flight test engineers lesson plan

Flight test engineers lesson plan

In Flight Test Engineers, students will learn how to make, test and fly their paper aeroplanes. The lesson focuses on developing students’ understanding of how to carry out a ‘fair test’ and forces to explain the motion of their paper planes. Students share their ideas about how different wing shapes lead to different forms of flight. They make a prediction and plan a test, make and record measurements, and present and evaluate their results.

TUNED / KEYBOARD | 3 Easy Classical Pieces

TUNED / KEYBOARD | 3 Easy Classical Pieces

In preparation for BBC Music Ten Pieces, I thought I would introduce some Classical Music to KS2 pupils on the glockenspiel, whether you use these for keyboard or even Ukulele. I will probably use them for Ukulele along with my Glockenspiel classes (Y4).

SAMBA | Swashbuckle Samba (Pirate Themed) [6 weeks]

SAMBA | Swashbuckle Samba (Pirate Themed) [6 weeks]

I love this topic for teaching kids about Carnivals and how Samba Schools set a theme for their song and costumes. This is a good one for performing as well as kids can always get dressed up themselves for it. There is a mixture of Sea Shanties and Pirate-related songs (though I'm sure you can think of more), pirate-themed rhythms and call & responses also Pirate-themed. I have included an audio sample of how the group rhythms should sound together. If you are unsure of how to perform the other rhythms see my FREE Grid Method resource. NOTE: make sure to install all fonts so that the Powerpoints look as intended.
