Scheme of Work

With your booking you will receive a free scheme of work, written specifically for Key Stage 1 and exploring the concert theme and content. The scheme encompasses 8 individual lessons and accompanying resources that can be delivered in the classroom by the class teacher. It will also introduce the performers and provide relevant background information to prepare for your visit.

The scheme of work allows learners to develop knowledge and skills, linked to the national curriculum, and will enhance their experience at the concert.

“The Scheme of Work is a big hook for me in booking. It pre–processes the experience for children with conditions like ASD and BSED. The children enjoy the concert more because they can connect with difficult music and focus on orchestra and the message (environment). The scheme of work also provides excellent CPD for teachers who are not music specialists and for those with a music specialism a great pedagogy for primary practice.”

INSET Session 

This free session will provide an introduction to the scheme of work and accompanying resources. It will allow teachers the chance to develop music teaching skills, and gain confidence in delivering the scheme of work in the classroom. Teachers will have the opportunity to ask any questions before their visit.

More details will be shared soon in relation to the INSET session date and time.
