Royal Opera House, creative learning at homeEach week there’s a new challenge that involves a themed activity to get you singing, dancing and making things at home. Why not take a look at the previous weeks that are suitable for the younger learners and see which ones you would like to try? I really like the look of the Wonderland Nature Hunt.
RSNO (Royal Scottish National Orchestra) Music Challenges These are musical activities you can do at home with things you can find around the house – including your voice. There are 5 challenges and videos are led by members of the RSNO. They do a demonstration of each challenge and then explain how to do it.
Marvellous Musical Podcasts – David Walliams There are 10 episodes looking at different composers, musicians and instruments and are delivered in a humorous and informative style with plenty of good music listening clips. More listening is available on Sound and Music on their Minute of Listening section. You can register for free to access to listening activities to encourage discussion and reflection. They are grouped as Collections, Curriculum and Mood. The Mood section would be valuable for PSHE and mental wellbeing.
Bring The Noise BBCFree primary school music, songs and resources for teachers, pupils and parents. There’s plenty of activities, tips, games, warm ups and ideas to try at home for younger learners.
