Below our partner organisations have provided a selection of home learning resources. You can read our collected Coronavirus (Covid-19) advice here and read our page specifically about online learning and safeguarding here. 

BBC Teach Bring the Noise 
Click here for a range of free, fun and simple online music resources that can be used flexibly at home or in the classroom. Aimed to inspire and engage children aged 4 to 7, the website offers interactive and inclusive activities for EYFS, KS1 and SEND pupils.  Resources include, ‘Thunder Jam’ an animation series that can tie into themes of Spring, weather and Vivaldi; new songs in a variety of styles such as ‘Music Time’ and ‘Golden’ with lyric sheets; British Sign Language versions of songs, and Found Sounds – a series of short films showcasing creative ways to turn everyday items into instruments with world-renowned saxophonist YolanDa Brown and the BBC Philharmonic.

Children can get started quickly and easily with Play It!, an online interactive music tool to help them learn about the different elements that make up a song. They can listen and layer sounds, play, clap or sing along, and even make and listen back to their own versions.  Over the coming weeks, children are invited to take part in the ‘I am a Robot’ sing, sign and dance challenge,  where adults can send in videos of their child’s robot performance for the chance for it to be included in a new BBC Teach Bring the Noise music video.
