Music's place in the National Curriculum in England and Wales is now firmly established. This book is a guide to help all primary teachers, and those with a co-ordinating role who support them, develop music in their classrooms. it looks at children's learning in music, in the context of current thinking on primary education and the developments of primary music since 1991. There are well-researched chapters on promoting children's musical composition and the ways in which music can be related to the whole primary curriculum. With a wealth of straightforward, practical ideas, a revised chapter on assesment and a new chapter on the role of the music co-ordinator, this new edition of Teachin Music in the Primary School will be indispensable reading for all primary teachers, primary music co-ordinators and those running music courses in teacher education at undergraduate, postgraduate or INSET levels. The editors are both at Bath Spa University College, where Joanna Glover is a Senior Lecturer in Music Education and Stephen Ward is Head of Department of Primary Education in the Faculty of Education and Human Sciences.

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.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
