To kick off the new term, we’ve added Plastic, a fantastic KS2 resource, to the Freestyle section of Charanga’s Musical School programme

Plastic pollution is of course a hot environmental topic. Here students are invited to research the issue before writing and recording a pop song warning of its dangers, using the video and track provided as a source of inspiration.  

The project, from our partners Susan and Adam Sinclair at OneMoreSong, comprises six 60-minute lessons. Perfect for 9–11 year olds, it will work equally well with older or younger students, and comes complete with lessons plans. 

As always, Musical School is regularly updated to offer teachers a greater variety of resources to challenge students of all ages and abilities, on all browsers. Keep an eye out for other gems coming soon!
