3) Musical Terms: Assessment:

Become familiar with the ‘Musical Terms’ sheet, and the answer sheet.

Print a copy for each member of the class (unanswered sheet!). This is a great way for the teacher to assess the understanding of musical terms. The pupils must connect the word to the corresponding picture.

TIP: Act out the pictures as a class. Point to the pictures in turn and ascribe actions to them. Some students may recognise the pictures (e.g. a crescendo), but may have English as a second language, therefore not yet able to link the picture to the word.

You can also read through the words together using phonics before beginning the exercise.

4) Story: Assessment

Become familiar with the ‘Story’ sheet, and the answer sheet.

Print a copy for each member of the class (unanswered sheet!). This is a great way for the teacher to assess the understanding of the story. The pupils must write the word above the corresponding picture.

TIP: Read the poem with the class first: say the word ‘soft’ very softly, and make a ‘p’ with your fingers each time you say ‘p’.

You can also read through the words together using phonics before beginning the exercise.

5) Self-Assessment [optional]:

This is an OPTIONAL assessment sheet. Self-assessment should start as early as possible once pupils have settled into the school year, and at the discretion of the teacher. 

Print a copy for each member of the class. Pupils should indicate the level (between 1-5) that they believe they are at for each category.

Teachers will want to collect these in once completed – and file away.
