Signposts to Music Texture Texture by Judith Lougheed

A unique new resource for Key Stages 1 and 2, these seven books of games and activities explore the seven musical elements required by the National Curriculum. It presents clear and simple instructions - ideal for the non-specialist music teacher. It includes fun, stimulating and progressive activities for individuals, groups, and the whole class. Each book contains an introduction to the element, and 19 pages of music activities and games using bodies, voices, and instruments. Each activity has a list of resources, easy step-by-step instructions, and photocopiable material where appropriate.


Each activity is clearly presented with simple instructions, resources needed, a learning focus, and numerous suggestions for link material and development. Key terms are explained in an introduction and there is plenty of advice for those new to organising music-making. The practical and varied ideas ensure that many aspects of each element are covered... these simple and thoughtful ideas will support teachers in helping children to listen attentively and enjoy making music. This alone should justify its inclusion in a school's music resources. Music Education Vol.15 No.2 1998

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

LoveReading4Kids is a modern and creative way of emphasising the value and importance of books in this digital age #booksforlife

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
