Newcomers in KS1 will continue to explore tunes and related exercises from our KS1 Book 1. Support materials and music are available on our KS1 Music Library subscriber pages. Where appropriate, these pieces will be linked to our musical element this term, which is dynamics.
With help from their Harp Academy teacher, KS2 children will work on their favourite pieces from our Music Library. They will also be encouraged to explore improvisation and compose their own pieces. KS2 children will investigate dynamics too.
