Music Scheme of Work

Discussion in 'Music' started by larnie, Jan 18, 2012.

  1. Hi There. I've just been reading this post. I am due to start at a junior school after Easter and they haven't had a music specialist for a while and they haven't really had much guidance :( Would you mind sending a copy of your ideas and KS2 scheme. It would be really useful to see the progression of skills. My email address is becdoster@hotmail.com

    Many thanks, Becky
  2. Charanga is good fun!
  3. Hi - I realise i am VERY late to this thread, but could you possibly send me your ideas for music planning? Just take on a new post and would like to check I'm on the right lines - I have only taught KS1 before but am now responsible for whole school Music. Thanks muchly :)

  4. I've just been having a look at Charanga. Do the kids like it
  5. Hi nataliegoharriz / johnnybegood / kimlouisedavies (and anybody willing to mail their SOW)

    I want to ask it if would at all be possible to also send me your ideas and SOW please, as I will be going on maternity leave in November and my head-teacher wants me to teach music across the school for Sept and Oct and possibly when I return from maternity as well.

    I know you have spend a lot of time writing these, but we don't have anything in school that I can work from as my school previously used the Council's Music Service, so it would be much appreciated!!

    Thank you!



  6. Hello, I am also a primary teacher who looks after the music in the school. I am also tired of Music Express and would really appreciate a look at your scheme of work which will hopefully provide me with some fresh ideas. If you are willing, my email is

    I have a ready-made KS2 unit of work here as an introduction to teaching music notation skills. And new units will be added over time, which you can integrate into your own scheme. http://www.teachmusic.tv There are also themed ideas for music activities which can also be used as you see fit within your own scheme.
  8. Anybody willing to help a new music co-ordinator with any SOW, I would be very appreciative. I was an NQT last year so struggling big time with action plans and SOW for KS2 as it has been left aside for a number of years in my school.

  9. Hi have a look at this website www.interactuk.net it may support you, all the modules have planning and resources....hope it helps

    Please help! I'm on long term supply teaching year 5 in a highly deprived area where the school has had no direction for over 2 years. There don't seem to be any musical resources, no specialist, no leader of music and no money. Previous heads have put the school into serious deficits. So having worked with fantastic music specialists in the past I would greatly value any advice on how to get music back on the menu so these poor kids get a chance at some fun they are sorely missing.
    My email is butts.sam@gmail.com. Plans schemes anything greatly received.

    I have been a main-stream class teacher for many years. In September, I will be changing my job completely and will be responsible for all the music in a 4-form primary school. I am a trained musician but it stills scares the living daylights out of me, to think about planning everything from scratch. I have nothing to base my lessons on, as my school used the council's music service for many years. If anyone would be so kind as to share any SOW, I'd be really grateful.

    Just out of interest, can I ask why people don't like Music express?

    @susansneddon8 For your youngest pupils I would recommend the Jolly Music Scheme. There is a teacher's book, CDs (so those who don't read music can hear how the songs go) and a big picture book for the children. (Puppets/toys are optional but really helpful - you would have to purchase these separately). The scheme is highly structured and prescriptive, but if you don't know where to start or where to go that is what you need. As your confidence develops you may choose to adapt a bit. At one time there were courses you could go on linked with this scheme.
    The scheme does go up to Y6 now, I believe, but you would have to let it work through naturally as it has a very specific methodology and philosophy which you wouldn't be able to parachute into Y5 and 6, in my opinion, if they haven't built up the skills and become accustomed to that way of working.

    Go onto the website jollylearning.co.uk
    Click on Music.
    There are many things to view and read on this page. There is also the word ‘products’ in the text. Click on this.
    A page of products will come up. Click on ‘Music’.
    You can then browse both the Big Books which can be put at the front of the class for the children to see - colourful pictures and the words of the songs etc. and the Teachers’ Books. You can order online.
    There is also an online training course.
    If you have any further queries, do post again.
    All the best!

    I teach across 4 very different schools (private, 10 in a class to state, 36 in class - yes, I know!) Anyway, I have implemented a music scheme across all schools from scratch based on the scheme offered by Sing Up - I use it as my framework and branch off doing my own things according to seasons/plays/demands/curriculum links then go back to it for inspiration! Would highly recommend!
