    Are you thinking of Unit 4?
    You have to source the music yourself. Perhaps the school has a library of CDs that you can use, if you don't have suitable ones of your own.
    Are you registered with Sing Up? There are lots of songs on that suitable for KS1.
    The songs and music mentioned in the QCA schemes are suggestions only. Provided you choose ones that have the same features that you are looking for then that is fine.
     
  2. Thank you Marlin.

    Yes I was wondering where I was able to source the music from. I have not tried Sing Up but will give it a go. Thank you. xx

    If you don't have the Bach and Vivaldi pieces on CD then just choose two contrasting pieces - they do not have to be from the Baroque era.
    There is no reason why you can't listen to some disco dance music for a strong beat if you really want to - it is listening to the pulse that is important.
    Look on the Sing Up site at the teaching notes - they have good points for teaching the songs and good ideas for further work too.
    Have fun!

     
  4. This is fantastic...thank you very much. :0)
