This twilight training series will give an introduction and overview of the new NYCOS Sounds Musical resource for Primary Schools. This training explores the pathway to musical reading and writing taught through singing games, rhymes and active learning. This training consists of 3 sessions. By the end of this series, you will have explored the following topics:  

  • Singing Games  
  • How the games help develop the whole child 
  • Using the games to embody rhythm and then make the rhythm reading conscious.  
  • Using the games to explore pitch and then introducing solfa reading from hand signs, stick notation and stave.  

As part of the NYCOS Edinburgh YMI project, all participating schools will receive teacher packs and PowerPoint slides including recordings/videos of all games. There are three packs which should cover musical learning outcomes – linking to the CfE – for the whole school year (P3/4 level).
