Short (1-4 activities)

This resource is part of our suite of music-related resources that have been produced to meet the requirements of both the curricula for music across the nations and the model music curriculum for England.

In this hour-long lesson, learners aged 7-11 will consider how music relates to silent cinema, and will plan a layered soundscape to be played with an extract from a silent film. As an extension activity, groups can perform their compositions in time to the film content. 

The lesson plans are flexible so educators can cherry-pick specific activities or use the learning sequence in its entirety.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
