Out of the Ark: Where Can A Song Take You? A Creative Journey
Tue 18 July 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
Ideal for both specialist and non-specialist teachers working with ages 5-11
This workshop will show you how to use singing as the basis for the National Curriculum for music. You will also learn how to get more than you ever thought possible from your favourite songs. Using the completely refreshed and updated ‘Songs for EVERY’ series as a foundation, you will learn how to unpack any song and make it the springboard for a fun, fresh and imaginative learning journey, relevant to any subject.
How would Kandinsky paint a song?; how does a morning sound; what does legato feel like? This session will help you think outside the box and spark creativity and imagination in and out of the classroom. Both specialist and non-specialist musicians will leave feeling confident teaching, using and ‘unpacking’ songs, and able to relate a song to the curriculum, both music and general. You will leave with a comprehensive list of song resources and the expertise to apply them flexibly to support learning in curricular subjects.
Included in the session:
• Easy to learn, catchy songs you’ll love to sing.
• Fantastic resources to take away including:
o Fabulous lesson plans – start teaching right away!
o Access to three free songs to use across your classroom or school
o Inspiring cross-curricular ideas – energize learning across the curriculum.
