- To use complex rhythms to be able to perform a theme
Pupils should be taught to:
- Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
- Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
Pupils needing extra support: If children are struggling with the body percussion section, get them to repeat the stamps the whole way through. During the final section, they could just do the claps rather than the A regular repeated pattern of sound on knees. During the singing section, they could play the pulse on a chime bar tuned to A or D.
Pupils working at greater depth: Any child with instrument knowledge could try to play the singing line on an instrument. Confident children could lead the class in the Wrapping up activity, or be a group leader when the class splits into two halves.
