We plan tasks that allow pupils to show their understanding, both of a standalone lesson and as part of a sequence of lessons, whilst making links to previous learning in other topics and year groups.
Year 3 joining in on a 'call and response'
"At the start of our topic, I knew Reggae music could be calm and relaxing, but now I know lots more like where it came from, the instruments it uses and how important the beat is." - George
"I thought rhythm meant how fast or slow but now I know rhythm is about the pattern of beats. I also know Reggae became popular in the 1970s." - Hollie
“We chose these notes for our composition because the melody sounds happy like Reggae music. These notes are also part of the chords we’ve been using in our Music lessons. Also, we repeated a G at the beginning because in Reggae music the melody often repeats notes as a part of the riff .” – Hollie and Ava
