9.00am – Arrival – Tea/Coffee
9.10am – Introduction and overview of the day
9.20am – 10.40am – Charanga Music Scheme with Madeleine Casson (Education director)
Madeleine will give us an update on recent developments and then this is an opportunity to ask her questions about the scheme and how to make the most of it. We’ll get hands on with some of the activities and it’s also a chance to share ideas with colleagues about how you might have adapted the scheme or used it in your school.
10.40-11.00 – Tea/Coffee break / opportunity for networking
11.00 – 12.00 – Percussion for the slightly terrified! Sue Nicholls – Author of many music books for schools
A KS1 workshop that explores accessible tuned and untuned percussion activities for the generalist teacher, including simple accompaniments for songs plus workable ideas for developing improvisation and composition with younger players.
12.00 – 12.30 – Your Music Hub
Make Music Gloucestershire is the county’s music education hub, here to support you and your pupils from 5-18. This is an opportunity to meet and chat to the music organisation partners, and find out about programmes they offer, and opportunities for your pupils, to ask any questions and share any thoughts
12.30-1.15 – Lunch break – Please bring your own lunch along but we will provide some yummy homemade cakes!
1.15-1.45pm – Mapping your students and their music – Nick Steele (Gloucestershire Music)
Did you know that the DfE and Arts Council England require all schools who benefit from the hub (that means you!) to share information about pupils and music? And that there are quick & easy ways to do it? – This is an opportunity to have a look at the form that all schools are required to submit by each September. The data then helps Make Music Gloucestershire secure future funding for us all so it’s really important and it gives you an overall picture of what is happening with music in your school. Nick will also talk to us about developing a SMEP (School Music Education Plan).
1.45-2.45 – Teacher sharing session
An opportunity for teachers to share practical ideas about songs, games, activities with instruments etc. A great way to learn some new ideas from each other!
2.45 – 3.00 – Tea/Coffee/ Networking opportunity
3.00 – 3.15 – Feedback and next steps
This event is run by Gloucestershire music teacher Analie Hart, in partnership with The Music Works.
It is supported by Make Music Gloucestershire, the county’s music education hub, which is funded by the Department for Education via Arts Council England.
