Join Primary Music Teachers from across East Sussex to develop teaching and learning in and through music across the primary curriculum.
Music is an important subject in every child’s primary education and also has great potential to hook children into learning in other areas of the curriculum. Ofsted’s recent Music Subject Survey and Annual Report highlight the need for primary school teachers to be given help and support in ensuring each music can be taught well to each class for an hour per week, in line with the expectations of the DfE’s new National Plan for Music Education, which came into force in September 2023.
This free workshop aims to develop primary teachers’ confidence and understanding to plan, teach and assess music successfully in their own classroom and across the primary school. Through engaging in practical learning experiences, we will explore ‘knowledge’ in music education and consider how it is built over time.
Music co-ordinators are invited to attend with one other colleague from their school who delivers music education, who may not be a music specialist.
Spaces are limited, so please register below to confirm your attendance.
Teachers attending the workshop will be given a copy of the Little Book of Knowledge for Primary Music by Dr Ally Daubney, which supports understanding the underpinnings of musical knowledge that is the basis of all published work schemes that schools may follow.
Refreshments will be provided.
