Event description
Suitable for any teacher of children aged 3-7 looking to improve children's phonics, spatial reasoning and maths.

About this Event

Part 1-Fabulous Phonics

There is much research available to show that music and speech share a number of the same processing systems, and that active engagement with music aids the brain’s early encoding of linguistic sounds. Phonemic awareness, speech processing, reading comprehension, recall of verbal information – all have been shown to benefit from musical training. This workshop, aimed at both specialist and non-specialist musicians, is an essential guide to using music and singing to develop phonics and literacy when teaching children aged 3 – 7.

Included In This Session:

  • A comprehensive guide to using music to enhance the teaching and learning of phonics and literacy.
  • Developing listening skills and phonological awareness; relationship between sounds and symbols; rhythm and rhyme; alliteration, oral blending and segmenting.
  • Literacy elements: alphabet; vocabulary development; features of language (onomatopoeia, verbs, homophones, etc.)
  • Creativity in language and story-telling.

Time permitting, the workshop will also include:

An introduction to Words on Screen™, our easy-to-use software, which guarantees that any teacher, no matter what their musical ability, will feel confident teaching songs and delivering great-quality music resources across the school curriculum.

Free Resources:

  • Access to two free songs to use across your classroom or school.
  • Activities Chest – an easy-to-follow activities bank, full of lessons, great tips and ideas.
  • A clear and helpful glossary.
  • A discount voucher for a really great deal on The Niki Davies Book Of Lovely Literacy Songs and My World: I Love Music

Part 2- Marvellous Maths

There is strong evidence to show the positive impact that active engagement with music can have on spatial reasoning. There also seems to be a strong relation between visuospatial reasoning and mathematical abilities. Research carried out by Out of the Ark Music (A Singing School Is A Successful School – 2017) showed a statistically significant difference in the percentage of correct mathematical responses following the implementation of the programme.

This workshop, aimed at both specialist and non-specialist musicians, is an essential guide to using music and singing to develop spatial reasoning and maths when teaching children aged 3 – 7.

Included In This Session:

  • A comprehensive guide to using music to enhance the teaching and learning of maths and spatial reasoning
  • A clear focus on how engagement in rhythmic activities aids mathematical development
  • Reinforcing how music can be used to help teach specific mathematical concepts
  • Developing a creative approach to teaching mathematics

Time permitting, the workshop will also include:

An introduction to Words on Screen™, our easy-to-use software, which guarantees that any teacher, no matter what their musical ability, will feel confident teaching songs and delivering great-quality music resources across the school curriculum.

Free Resources:
