Scheme of Work

With your booking you will receive a free scheme of work, written specifically for Key Stage 2 and exploring the concert theme and content. Encompassing 8 individual lessons that can be delivered in the classroom by the class teacher, it also includes recordings of some of the repertoire, specially recorded by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and additional resources to support the lessons. It will also introduce the performers, and relevant background information to prepare for your visit.

The Key Stage 2 scheme of work also includes the lyrics and video to learn our specially commissioned song, sung by all children in the audience during the concerts. The video will also include the British Sign Language to support teaching the song.

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.”

The scheme of work will be sent out via email to all bookers within a week of booking.
