Event description

Description

There is much research available to show that music and speech share a number of the same processing systems, and that active engagement with music aids the brain’s early encoding of linguistic sounds. Phonemic awareness, speech processing, reading comprehension, recall of verbal information – all have been shown to benefit from musical training. This workshop, aimed at both specialist and non-specialist musicians, is an essential guide to using music and singing to develop phonics and literacy when teaching children aged 3 – 7.

Included in the session:

  • A comprehensive guide to using music to enhance the teaching and learning
    of phonics and literacy.

  • Developing listening skills and phonological awareness; relationship between
    sounds and symbols; rhythm and rhyme; alliteration, oral blending and
    segmenting.

  • Literacy elements: alphabet; vocabulary development; features of language
    (onomatopoeia, verbs, homophones, etc.)

  • Creativity in language and story-telling.

Time permitting, the workshop will also include:

  • An introduction to Words on Screen™, our easy-to-use software, which
    guarantees that any teacher, no matter what their musical ability, will feel
    confident teaching songs and delivering great-quality music resources
    across the school curriculum.

Fantastic resources:

  • Access to two free songs to use across your classroom or school.

  • Activities Chest – an easy-to-follow activities bank, full of lessons,
    great tips and ideas.

  • A pipe cleaner!

  • A clear and helpful glossary.

  • A discount voucher for a really great deal on The Niki Davies Book Of Lovely
    Literacy Songs
    and My World: I Love Music.
