Our super new featured theme for February 2020 is Music!


Our great featured theme for February 2020 is Music. Most people like listening to music, many like to perform it, but teaching it in primary schools for non-music specialists can sometimes be tricky. In this theme, we hope to provide resources that will help teachers in this task. With these resources we explore the following:

  • Listening and Appraising Music
  • Musical Elements
  • Musical Styles
  • Musicians and Composers
  • Music Performance, Singing and Songs
  • Musical Instruments

We have over 60 excellent themed resources that will hopefully help teachers in their understanding and delivery of teaching music. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations, performances, songs, audio clips, quizzes and video clips, as well as some detailed planning – each of which will successfully underpin this artistic and creative topic.


The featured theme is updated monthly during the school year.  Please watch out for our super ‘Language’ resources, coming in March 2020!
