Documents and Resources:

When visiting schools to carry out school audits, a number of people have mentioned difficulties in teaching musical notation and standardising how this is taught within school. Below are three PowerPoint files that contain an approach to this based around shapes, suitable for children from Reception upwards to Year 6. Each rhythm is taught through the syllabic pattern of the name of the shape (shape, circle, etc.) and uses colourful images to represent each rhythm (tip: the number of eyes link to the amount of claps).

Display Shape Rhythms – Introductory power point with shape and matching rhythm cards.

Editable Shape Rhythms – Create your own rhythmic resources.

Shape Rhythms – Printable resources to create a notation based display in your music room or area.

Please email if you require further information.
