    Hello, I'm making the move from Primary music specialist to Secondary music teacher.
    The school I'm going to has no schemes of work in place.
    Any suggestions for what to do with Year 7 and 8 MUCH APPRECIATED!

    Can you find out anything about what experience of Music the children have already? What did the Year 7s do last year?
    It’s difficult to plan anything long term without knowing what equipment you have access to and what experience the children have already.

    Hi I can blast over a SoW for Y7-9 if that helps? Its not very specific and is quite open to interpretation but may be a starting point.

    Year 7 should learn the elements of music; Tempo, dynamics, timbre, etc. Year 8 builds on this and in year 9, you can assume they know the elements and basic chords and you can do different music topics with them like film music, musicals, pop music etc. I used to use an online music resource company for all the worksheets/HW etc but I forgot which one now. You will need a good set of percussion instruments and probably keyboards. ANything else is a bonus.

    I am also in a similar situation just moved into secondary. Would I be able to get a copy of your SoW yr 7 - 9?
    That would be awesome.
