Primary Music Network Meetings

We are pleased to announce that we are going to continue our offer of a 40% discount on your school’s annual Sing Up Membership this year, however, the process is slightly different.

  • If you would like to take up this offer, you need to contact the Music & Arts Service Office (01274 434970) or schoolsmusicandarts@bradford.gov.uk) and speak to Jenny Hopper.
  • Jenny will provide you with this year’s discount code.
  • Last year we had some issues with the codes not being used when schools reached the ordering stage so please ensure that you pass the code on to your business manager/finance team.
  • Orders placed without the code will not receive the discount and cannot be refunded.

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 carl.white@bradford.gov.uk if you require further information.
