A Musical Journey - Key Stage 1

Introducing 'A Musical Exploration', a scheme of work designed for use with Key Stage 1 pupils to deliver an engaging musical experience, where pupils explore the interrelated dimensions of music through the use of handheld percussion instruments, voice and body percussion. 

Each lesson includes a Lesson Video which can be used to lead the lesson or used as a guide to adapt for your own delivery. In addition to this, there is Teacher Guide Video for each lesson, walking through key points of lesson objectives, assessment for learning and further learning. 

Included also are the necessary backing tracks for use and detailed written lesson plans for each lesson explaining in extra detail the constitution of every task. Within the lesson plan there are extra teacher notes that highlight areas for differentiation, cross-curricular skills and how to consolidate learning.
