- To create simple tunes
Pupils should be taught to:
- Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
- Improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related dimensions of music
- Use and understand staff and other musical notations
Pupils needing extra support: Play one of the starter melodies for them and then offer some suggestions for making a longer melody.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be challenged to make their two melodies that complement each other – no clashing notes.
