2018 Teach Early Years Award for Early Years Music Resources!
This new multi-platform Musicality resource for 3-6 year-olds was launched to a great reception in 80 primary based nursery classes in North Lanarkshire in Feb 2014, after a 3 year R&D programme based on current child development research and Early Years practice. The R&D has continued, based on feedback from the ever-expanding user base, and the resources have been updated and improved every year since – including 2018.
Since 2014 the resources have now been rolled out in all of North Lanarkshire’s Family Learning Centres and SEN nurseries, and most of their private partner nurseries as well. In addition, this revolutionary resource is now being used in nurseries and ASN/SEN schools in many more Scottish Local Authorities including Edinburgh, Midlothian, Aberdeenshire, South Lanarkshire, Clackmannanshire, Inverclyde, and East Renfrewshire.
It is unique in combining:
- Child-friendly activities on interactive whiteboards and iPads
- A ring-binder with simple laminated instructions for group activities
- Clear strategies for working in Freeplay settings
- Topic-themed resource banks- to provide the flexibility to follow children’s changing interests
with all the required teaching aids, puppets and sound files (on Audio CDs and iPads) in a handy jute bag.
A Flexible Cross-Curricular Resource for Child-led Learning
The flexible resource is designed to be in tune with a child-centred approach to Early Years education, with structured guidance on how to adapt existing activities or develop your own musicality activities, allowing you to focus activities on the changing interests of your children, improving engagement and learning.
The resources provide a wide range of off-the-peg adult-led group activities, a rich strategy for use in freeplay, and the resulting range of educational, musical, creative and interactive experiences you can offer children engages many areas of child development and the curriculum, including literacy and numeracy, and is useable by all staff whether or not they are confident in teaching music.
This resource is also now being used widely in SEN settings and getting fantastic results.
A full CPD training programme is available, including on-site nursery/school visits with children and staff.
