Introducing Project One Dot

9 November 2018

Project One Dot is an all new, free resource from Snape Maltings’ Friday Afternoons, designed to encourage and support creative vocal work in the KS2 classroom.

Created by Emily Barden and David Ashworth, Project One Dot is an introduction to the Friday Afternoons world, a ‘first steps’ into the resource designed to support quality singing and creative music making in a flexible and adaptable way.

The Project consists of four songs specially chosen from the Friday Afternoons Song Bank, all of which have been classified as ‘one dot’ (easy) in level. Each module contains musical exploration activities and extended creative work, which can be taken as stand-alone ‘mini projects’ or as part of the complete module.

Designed to support teachers to develop the skills of both their students and themselves, the resource provides tips on singing the songs successfully, teachers notes, national curriculum mapping guidance, assessment points and teacher skill development included throughout.

After completing Project One Dot you and your students will have a set of four Friday Afternoons songs to perform, along with original compositions and arrangements devised by your young people.

The free online resource will be supported by a national training programme, all of which will be launched at the Singing Strategy Symposium on Monday 12 November 2018.
