MUSIC REPORT TIME!
It’s report time and I bet you are not too excited about it!
TRY THIS IS ONE LESSON: You need class lists with tick-boxes.
RHYTHM – tap a 4-beat rhythm to the child for them to tap back. Repeat with 8 beats. Results give the sentences:
‘Sarah is able to repeat a 4-beat rhythm pattern accurately’
‘Sarah is able to repeat an 8-beat pattern accurately’ or…
‘Sarah is learning to listen to and repeat 4-beat patterns.’
- PITCH – sing a 2/3/4/5 note phrase and ask the children to sing it back to you. If too hard, sing a phrase with less notes and try again. Some may sing back on totally different notes but PRAISE THEM ANYWAY and note that they are in need of more pitch-matching games. Results give the sentences:
‘Ahmed has good pitch-matching skills’
‘Ahmed is working on his pitch-matching skills’
- MUSICAL TASKS COVERED – Write a couple of sentences about what the whole class have been involved in muscially (repeat this bit for each report) – then about this particular child’s involvement in extra-curricular musical activities. Add any personal information you have.
- CONFIDENCE – From the pitch exercise you will also note their confidence to sing in public. Ask each child whether they LIKE music and what aspects they like. This makes a good end sentence to all music reports.
ALL DONE! THAT’S MUSIC SUCCESSFULLY DONE AND OUT OF THE WAY!!!
