Remembrance Day Lesson Adventure
The power of music can be transformative and nothing illustrates this clearer than hearing The Last Post. A lot of us recognise it when we hear it, but how much do we know about it, and what do the children make of it?
Our Remembrance Day Lesson Adventure is reflective and diverse going on fun musical forays inspired by the military. In addition to the cross-curricular learning, by joining in the children will:
discover the Sottish Great Highland Bagpipes, create drones and make bagpipes if time permits;
play a musical game of The General Says exploring tempo, dynamics and rhythm recall;
experience and learn about The Last Post;
practice rhythmically precise and dynamically varied marching and/or drumming and take control of the conductor's podium;
join in with a wonderful Italian marching piece; and
count along with the 10 smart soldiers standing in a line.
Which Areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage are covered
The information in this quick glance guide is SUPPLEMENTARY to how the Lesson Adventures cover the seven areas of learning as set out in the Harmony's Music Club and the Early Years Framework document which can be found here. It is not to be read in isolation.
We all know that accidents happen - that cups of tea and coffee get spilled, that pieces of paper get put in a pile never to be found again.. and consequently Harmony's Music Club does not limit downloads of Lesson Adventures.
We also do not require you to subscribe to access our material on a quarterly or yearly basis so that you have the freedom to pick and choose the material which you want when you want and because we know that not all schools have the same financial resources at their disposal.
However, in exchange for this, we do ask that you use your judgment in how many Lesson Adventures you put in your basket to reflect how many teachers will be using them. Please respect this so that we do not have to raise our prices.
