Curriculum Car Journey

Curriculum Car Journey

(1)
I couldn’t find a blank car journey display to visually organise my curriculum anywhere! This is a very basic (but does the job) car journey created on Microsoft Word. It looks good on A3 paper and can easily be edited for any subject or topic. The two roads meet when placed next to each other.
Assessment without Levels - Performing and Compositing

Assessment without Levels - Performing and Compositing

(1)
I have created a document for our SLT explaining how the music department will deliver assessment without levels at key stage 3. The criterion includes written assessment descriptions for performance and composition adapted into pupil language from the London College of Music Performance assessment criteria. They are categorised as: Below On Target Above Target Significantly Above Target We still expect pupils to make 3 sub levels of progress each year (e.g. 4a – 5a) however if they are meeting this expectation we say they are On Target. If pupils are surpassing this expectation we use the term Above Target or Significantly Above Target. If pupils are below what’s expected (e.g. 4c – 4a) they are Below target. Hope this helps.

Blank Music Score

Blank Music Score

(0)
Blank musical score for composing or performing (guitar, bass guitar, keyboard and drums). This score is ideal for pupils that have little or no musical theory or practical knowledge. It can be used to compose a song, or to simplify an existing song using numbers and images. I have used it to write pop songs for KS3 where pupils work in small rock bands and it works really well. I have built up a library of songs using this blank score! It creates complete songs using single notes, triads and tab chords that are easily found on the internet. Note: The box in the top left corner indicates a single note in the left and the triad in the right (keyboard).
