Using the pBuzz Primary Resources
This scheme of work covers the entire National Curriculum for Music at KS1. Details of the curriculum coverage of each 5-week unit can be found in the individual lesson plans.
Each unit introduces or reinforces one of the interrelated dimensions of music, and each features a unique song in a different musical style. Each unit also has an overarching topic that you may wish to link with your Creative Curriculum planning.
The timing of each lesson is flexible to allow you to best support the needs of your class and to fit in with your existing school timetable. However, you should set aside around 30 minutes for each lesson. In the final Year 2 unit, you will be testing the children against the end of Key Stage expectations, so you should set aside around 45-60 minutes per lesson for this unit.
We recommend that the units are followed in order, however, if you do decide to start in the middle of the scheme, remember to first complete the Introduction to the pBuzz preparatory unit.
Each topic also includes a video guide to each episode. All twelve videos can be found on the pBuzz Primary Resources YouTube Playlist.
