The audio CD includes 53 tracks to support the Warm-Up games and theme units, including vocal and backing tracks for our original, catchy songs.
Bubbles Music Key Stage 1 Lesson Plans
The Bubbles Music Lesson Plans are designed to support the less confident primary teacher and any practitioners who feel they need a little more detailed prescription. By splitting the twelve units up into six lesson plans, teachers are able to work through the unit phases at their own pace. Each activity is described in detail and a playlist is provided so that extra tracks can be sourced and incorporated to enhance lessons, as well as still using the tracks on the Bubbles Music Audio CD. These plans are designed to be used in conjunction with the Bubbles Music Key Stage One Resource File. Support and training is available to help schools get the best out of their Bubbles resources.
