‘Bubbles’ is one of five booklets which develop music activities for primary age children in a progressive way. They suggest ideas for collaboration between teachers, other school staff and Visiting Musicians.
The focus of Bubbles is developing awareness of, and ability to maintain a steady beat and rhythm, whilst supporting children in reading simple notation and composition. Throughout are activities/games for the primary classroom. This series of books is written primarily with the ‘generalist’ music teacher in mind, although specialists/coordinators may appreciate ideas to add to their music-teaching repertoire. The activities are designed to be progressive across key stages 1 and 2. However, sets of activities could be viewed as mini-projects. CPD: The materials also work well in a Professional Development context.
