Turn your pupils into musical math-e-magicians!
For Primary 1 to 3
This fun, interdisciplinary project introduces children to the joy of brass instruments and the rich sound world they create, while also supporting delivery of the Early and First Level numeracy curriculum. No musical experience necessary!
Full resources available to download 19 April
The Brassketeers is made up of two elements:
- An animated musical storybook introducing the trumpet, trombone and French horn
- A set of comprehensive, curriculum-based teaching resources to use with your pupils
Teaching resources include lesson plans, slide shows, worksheets and games, exploring the relationship between music and maths, as wells as introducing pupils to the basics of music theory and musical notation.
Resources offer a variety of challenges for learners at different stages and are written flexibly – one or both can be used, with lessons sequenced as appropriate for pupils and curriculum priorities.
The Brassketeers is FREE for school use until the end of 2021.
