Teaching resources

What are these resources for?
These resources have been designed to allow the Growing Sound Project to be run by teachers in their own schools. All of the workshop activities are referenced to the National Curriculum and the QCA Schemes of Work for KS2.

Although the original Growing Sound Project is based around a whole day of activities, we appreciate that not every school can devote this amount of curriculum time to Growing Sound workshops.  In order to provide maximum flexibility the workshop resources are presented in bite size units allowing a mix and match approach to suit individual needs.

You can download all of the worksheets and other resources from the table below.

In the video below, Steve Mesure explains how the growing sounds workshop works. For a detailed explanation of the resources download the teachers guidence document;
