Hello! i've been given the job of teaching music to a Y1 class this year (much excitement), but I have never actually taught infants before...am just looking for a bit of reassurance I suppose. the topic is toys, so I'm thinking along the lines of rhythms based on toys (doll, teddy, racing car - then something with 4 syllables), doing some listening games, same and different musical sound etc - and then songs....I can rewrite old macdonald to be about toys - ideally I would like another sky that is nice and simple.... i was also wondering about a class composition around a picture (I was thinking santa's workshop) - or do you think this is more a ks2 thing? (And how will I do a cover and reveal with an iwb? I'll have to see if they have a visualiser...) also, I thought we could listen to a bit of the nutcracker - with very little ones I would get them to move to the music - would you still want to be doing this with Y1? How would you get them to respond? just thinking aloud, really. Any comments/advice gratefully received!
