Shared learning and teaching
Listen to music tracks by the artists named in the text. This will help the children to understand the information and get a sense of the musical genre being explored. Look at pictures of the featured artists, too.
These activities will build on the following skills: drawing together ideas from across a text, using simple signposts; using organisational features; using context to build stores of vocabulary; writing non-fiction texts in a similar style, selecting appropriate presentational features; using planning to establish clear sections; word processing.
