- To use knowledge of pitch to develop confidence when singing in parts
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: Pupils who struggle with pitching or singing should be positioned next to a pupil or adult who finds it easier to follow a melody.
Pupils working at greater depth: Pupils who are able to hold the counter-melody can be used as ‘singing champions’ to lead the group, or be placed strategically amongst other children who may not be so strong.
