I am a music specialist and the music I write is original, tested on children and for the less confident teacher. My aim is to provide you with everything you need to fulfil Topic requirements and those of the National Curriculum (without having to prepare anything.) I provide Power Points/videos and give you mp3s and lyrics. Notation is sometimes given. The instrumental parts are dead easy!

Friendship . The dog and the dolphin

(55)
The wonderful story of the dog and the dolphin who became friends. I have put the web address to the original video but I have included my adapted version in the downloads as the scene when the shark appears is a little frightening for younger viewers I have a also written the soundtrack,. Whatever age, this video captures children’s hearts. It can be used during Assembly or when the children walk in.

History through music. The Skye Boat Song - The escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie

(0)
The song is intended to be used as part of the study of the Jacobite rebellion or as a song to learn in the folk song genre in music. Our class are studying Great British Battles and we will use the song in that context. Examples of learning objectives are... L.O To use folk music as a historical resource or To recognize the genre of folk music. There are many objectives you could use for this beautiful song. Differentiation - There is an optional harmony I have also put up on the free section of the TES, a PowerPoint presentation about the Battle of Culloden to run in conjunction with the song. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/history-and-music-the-battle-of-culloden-11094798 The resource here contains a video or a self running PowerPoint of the song , a copy of the lyrics and chords plus a vocal mp3 and a backing track.

How to play some notes 6 Mary and angel melody and guitar 7 As above in Sibelius 8 Mary and the angel resources list.

The sunflowers.Geography. Cross curricular worksheets. Section 5.

(0)
Suitable Ages 6-8 The presentation is in A4 size, so the worksheets can be printed directly from the PowerPoint. I have included a free song from the musical “The Sunflowers” which could be a starting point. There are 10 different areas in the Sunflower Project. The one here concentrates on finding where the children have been on holiday. They can mark on the key if they saw a sunflower. Prior to that, the first maps help children to recognize the continents and Europe. The sheets can be trimmed easily by the child so that they can be pasted into an A4 booklet. The sunflower Project starts with the sowing of the sunflower seed and follows the observation through until Harvest. Each resource covers a curriculum area. The assumption is that natural science knowledge is absorbed through these various activities.

A cumulative action chant useful for topic on Castles Title "Open the drawbridge and let me in "

(0)
I used this as part of our topic on castles. It leads onto questions and research such as Who lived in castles? The children sang it as part of a game. It’s quite challenging to chant with the backing track. Get children to count how many beats there are in between each verse. Nat Curric History They should know where the people and events they study fit within a chronological framework and identify similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods. Resources Video and/ or PowerPoint presentation of the chant Backing track and vocal track Lyrics and how to perform the chant in a circle with actions
