From October 2020 and responding to demand from teachers, an online resource pack will be available delivering a years’ worth of creative activities for primary schools. Developed by teachers for teachers, this will support the six areas of learning and experience: expressive arts, health and well-being, humanities, languages, literacy, communication, numeracy, science and technology. Through this new exciting resource pack, we hope to capture your imagination whilst supporting you through the new curriculum.
Practice, prepare and participate
You will investigate time and place, discover an appreciation of music, instruments, composers and performers with enough activities that build steadily on children’s knowledge and interest to culminate in a final performance to share with the school and families.
- It requires no prior knowledge from you, but for those who are experts, you too will have an exciting journey.
- You will also have a fortnightly message from Professor Peri the inventor of opera and the Headmaster of The Academy of Barmy Composers with extra challenges along the way.
For the children: Hold on to your hats as you prepare for a rollecoster ride of antics from the Academy of Barmy Composers. You will have fun learning songs, games, drawing to music, sign language, tongue twisters, yoga and so much more.
For Families: The activities will engage children and hopefully take you along with them on this exciting journey. Listen to classical music at home or if you are able to watch some opera scenes together on youtube – try re-creating some on Tik tok – such fun! Have your own copy of The Academy of Barmy Composers books so that you can all learn together.
