Body Percussion as a classroom starter activity (for any subject)

Specialist music teachers have long known the value of body percussion. It’s music that you can make anywhere and with anything. This makes it an equally exciting tool for use by non-musicians in their lessons. We have pulled together four of our favourite ways for any teacher to make use of body percussion in their starter activities. The ideas below will allow you to make music with your class so that you can deliver the learning objectives of any subject. Body Percussion with Call and Response​ Sometimes, lessons need to start with an energiser. Last lesson of a rainy day? Start with an energiser. A sleepy class after a school trip? Start with an energiser. It wakes everyone up and gets the children ready to learn. A great option is to combine body percussion with call and response. Try clapping and stomping a rhythm to your class and getting them to copy it back to you. Be fussy about the pupils being accurate with the rhythm and keeping a steady pulse. This will focus their minds on accuracy and wake them up! It doesn’t even have to be limited to a starter activity. Does your lesson feel a little one-paced? ...

The Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT) – Why Primary Science? A highlight of the teacher support we offer, and one of our key resources, now in Welsh!

The PSTT is an educational charity whose vision is “to see excellent teaching of primary science in every classroom in the UK.” Research tells us that a child can decide that science is not for them before they leave primary school. This presents a huge concern, because whether a child chooses a career in science or not, they still require a level of scientific literacy to make informed and responsible decisions about their personal health and well-being, and the important wider issues for society. Furthermore, the future of the UK economy depends on a continuous pipeline of skilled scientists entering the workforce. A good primary teacher nurtures a child’s innate curiosity about the world around them which is crucial for the development of scientific skills, understanding and positive attitudes to science. This is no easy task and teachers need continued support. The PSTT seeks to provide this support through offering free-to-access resources and lesson plans; largely underpinned by substantiated research from practising teachers and our partnerships with academic collaborators. Further, we recognise the achievements of outstanding primary science teachers and award them Fellowship to our virtual College. Through the Primary Science Teacher College our Fellows receive access to funding and continued ...
