Welcome to Hands-On Education, your go-to source for fun and engaging learning resources for primary school teachers and home educators. Today, we're here to provide you with some exciting ideas for incorporating music and movement into your lesson plans.

For those following the National Curriculum, music is a crucial element of the primary school curriculum. One way to make learning about music fun and interactive is to integrate movement into your lessons. For example, you could create a musical scavenger hunt where students have to find and identify different instruments or musical elements around the classroom or schoolyard.

For those following the English Curriculum, there are plenty of activities that can help children develop their language skills through music. For example, you could have students listen to a popular song and then analyse the lyrics for literary devices such as metaphors, similes, and alliteration.

If you're a homeschooling parent looking for music activities to do with your children, there are a plethora of options available. You could have your child create their own musical instrument using household items and then write a song to perform with their new creation.

Whatever your situation may be, it's important to make learning about music fun and engaging for children. By incorporating movement and interactive activities, you'll be sure to capture their attention and make the learning experience a memorable one.
