Suitable for KS1 & KS2
We are sure you are aware of the National Plan for Music (NPME) which was launched last year; The Power of Music to change Lives.
Within this plan three distinct but interlinked areas of provision are highlighted, that when all in place offer a high-quality music education for our young people. These are:
- Curriculum Music
- Instrumental and Vocal Lessons
- Musical Events and Opportunities
Along with this there is an expectation that all schools should have a Music Development Plan that brings these areas into focus.
Keeping to the vision of the NPME, Leicestershire Music have put together a day of training, to give you food for thought in these areas, through training from National Experts in music education.
Mark Phillips - School Development Plans
In his workshop, Mark will consider the recommendation from the National Plan for Music Education that all schools should have a School Music Development Plan. He will explore the differences between activity and quality, discuss what makes music a unique and essential part of the curriculum, reflect on generic 'whole school' teaching strategies and the extent to which these are effective in music, and look at how relevant assessment in music is vital in raising standards. Mark's presentation will also draw on recent publications such as the Model Music Curriculum and Ofsted's research review in music, and will consider how good curriculum design can help give pupils access to whatever music they will encounter in their future lives.
Nicola Burke - Are we listening?
With the NPME encouraging more access to live musical experiences;
- How do we support young people to carry out quality listening?
- How are we supporting children and young people to develop their listening skills and how well do we listen to children, young people and each other?
- How much time do we spend listening and how much time have we spent being taught 'how' to listen?
This session will explore listening, what this means, how we can develop this crucial skill and how this relates to active music listening. Delegates will be invited to consider their own listening styles and perspectives of listening within the classroom and within everyday life.
Sharon Durant – Singing for KS1&2
With a focus on vocal teaching within the NPME, Sharon Durant will lead an interactive singing session.
Optional extra: Sharon Durant will be rehearsing the teacher's choir after the Primary Symposium. It will be the first rehearsal after the De Montfort Hall performance so we will be looking at new repertoire. This is open to anyone who works in education.
Price - £80 per delegate - includes lunch & refreshments
