levels and sub levels...

Discussion in 'Music' started by Lizzy71, Apr 28, 2011.

  1. Hi
    Sorry if this a really silly question. I teach music one a day a week at primary covering PPA. I have been out of teaching for three years with my daughter so am a bit behind on all the latest updates to plans.assessing etc... (Mind you, i was never really that up to date when i was teaching!!)
    However I have been asked for music levels for the children...to include sub levels...I can find level descriptors with no problems...and can say if children are working at level 3 etc..but how do you sort out sub levels for music? Or don't you and my head is asking for thinghs that don't exist in music?? I have never been asked for music sub levels before...
    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    There are no sub-levels in the National Curriculum. However, many schools divide up the NC levels, often using an a,b,c system.
    Example:
    Level 4c = kid is just about level 4.
    Level 4a = kid is almost level 5.
    Level 6b = kid is a safe level 6.
    Etc.

    The NC was not designed to be used this way but sub-levelling has become the de facto system in many schools.
