A week of reading, talking and listening!

This week the MF team have been busy!

Take a look at our response to the Government Spending Review 

We enjoyed reading about how one teacher in Canada got involved with the Find Your Voice approach and how it changed her thoughts about what she does in her classroom and how and why she does it.

 

This article about the rise in mental heath disorders in children and young people got us thinking about the part that music might be able to play in preventing this trend from continuing.

On Wednesday, Abi visited Morpeth School in London and heard why these year 7 students think music is important

Fran was at The Academies Show talking about the importance of CPD for teachers with Teach First and others

Kevin and Abi met with Jonny from Yamaha at their flagship London store

Anna caught up with her former student Jonathan to ask what he feels music means to him

 

And we launched our #hiddenmusicians campaign to celebrate the importance of music in all our lives, no matter what we do or where we are!

In all schemes of work and lessons from now on! Excellent day, wish I would have come years ago.

Yesterday’ss RSL course was absolutely outstanding. The school was awe inspiring and just walking round the corridors gave me some excellent ideas to implement at my own school. With regards to the RSL aspect of the course, I now have a strong understanding on how to run it and know how my assignment briefs should look etc. etc.

Brilliant ideas to take forward into my own teaching… a fantastic day – left with lots of new ideas and strategies…
