Before the lesson
- To appraise the work of a classical composer (Felix Mendelssohn)
Pupils should be taught to:
- Appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians
Pupils needing extra support: May benefit from adult support (if available) or being paired with a more literacy-able partner.
Pupils working at greater depth: Pupils with knowledge of orchestras and instruments can be challenged to identify the sounds of different instruments, and comment on the effects of these sounds.
Pupils who excel in literacy can be challenged to use alliteration, and use metaphors or similes in their descriptive phrases.
