Additional resources for the Summer Holiday

Please continue to access the resources shared for home learning whilst in lockdown, before the 10th July 2020. 

I have also shared a lovely new resource developed by The Royal Albert Hall in London. It teaches children about an orchestra, the instruments and their sounds and how they are played. There is a lovely work booklet too, that can be completed as your child follows the videos.

Learning about the orchestra will enable your child to develop their knowledge about instruments and their sounds and how they are played, which will help them with some of the listening activities in music lessons once they are back at school. 

A Million Dreams - Virtual Choir Project

Did you submit your recording for the 'A Million Dreams' Virtual Choir? Did you send in a photo? If so, here's the finished version, which sounds A-MAZ-ING!! Look out for yourself in the the photos! Mrs Bell spotted quite a few ARH pupils, so well done!

The following resources include activities suitable for pupils in KS1 and KS2. Your child/ren will access them in different ways and at different levels. The most important thing is that they - and you - have fun!


Do you enjoy singing? Would you like to be part of a virtual choir, led by Mark De-Lisser? Mark has worked with some of the UKs top vocal talent including Ariana Grande, Jessie J and Beverley Knight. He's also worked on a number of TV programmes such as 'Got It Covered' for Children in Need; BBC's 'Our Dementia Choir' with Vicky McClure and BBC's 'Meet the Street' at Christmas.


He also arrangde 'Stand by Me' for Harry and Meghan's wedding in 2018!
