Our music resources for primary schools are designed to help teachers to teach music in the classroom. Music resources for primary schools can be difficult to find. The challenge is finding resources that are fun and engaging as well as educational. However, there’s no need to worry! We have decided to share our music resources for primary schools completely free of charge!
A good introductory activity to start a class is the ‘Name Game’. This activity is excellent for teaching rhythm, maintaining a steady beat and pulse, and co-ordination. Such activities can aid motor coordination and facilitate a sense of teamwork, and a rapport between students. Students are asked to maintain a steady rhythmic pattern during this activity. This can be done by clapping/stomping or using simple rhythm instruments whilst seated in a circle. Once a steady rhythm is established, students take turns stating their names in time with the rhythmic pattern. This activity can be varied so children are asked to state their favorite food or color, what they had for breakfast, etc., to keep them thinking and keep the activity fresh each time. Some examples of two variants of the Name Game are shown below:
Up The Ladder, Down The Ladder
Use these music resources in your primary school classroom, and the children will be sure to engage and develop their sense of rhythm, pulse and co-ordination!
