Wednesday, 5 May, 4.30 – 6.00pm
By harnessing children’s curiosity and wonder, music can be a vehicle for exploring ideas beyond the classroom. Katie and Jen will share examples of how they plan and develop extended inquiries stemming from a child’s wondering as they create their own music. They will also discuss planning and pacing an early years music class drawing on their combined experiences. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and share their own practice.
Jen Skate teaches at Methodist Ladies’ College, Kew, Victoria. For 11 years she worked with 3 and 4 year old Early Years classes in the Reggio Emilia Kindle program.
Katie Hull-Brown is currently the National Arts Learning Manager at The Song Room and has taught music in the early years and primary sector for 20 years.
