Sound Effects to ‘A Scary Story’
One Unit of Five Music Lessons
Suitable for pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2.
This unit teaches pupils to listen carefully, respond to cues and experiment with a range of different sounds using their voices, bodies, a selection of percussion instruments and everyday objects. They will present a performance of ‘A Scary Story’ using appropriate sound effects.
Timing is of the essence. ‘A Scary Story’ requires concentration, the ability to listen to others and play at the correct time.
It can be delivered to a small or large group of pupils.
You do not have to have a musical background to deliver it.
This resource will support your delivery of the National Curriculum for Music. The musical activities in this pack focus on Playing, Improvising and Listening, (National Curriculum for Music 2013). In addition the activities aid the development of a range of wider skills including focus, team-work, performing, comprehension and discussion.
This unit includes five, detailed, easy to follow lesson plans with step by step instructions, numerous examples, advice, delivery tips and extension ideas. It also includes a paper copy of ‘A Scary Story’ and a copy of the story presented through PowerPoint.
