Key Stage 2 and 3 Concerts

The World in One City: A Musical Journey


In partnership with National Museums Liverpool

Fancy a trip around the globe?

Join presenter Alasdair Malloy, conductor Matthew Lynch and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on an epic musical journey.

Different countries, different cultures – music is a gateway to it all. In this concert, the Orchestra will use music to help us discover the history and traditions of communities around the world – as well as those a little closer to home here in Liverpool! Exploring geography and identity, we will also learn about the important role music plays in shaping a sense of home and self for individuals around the globe.

Scheme of Work

With your booking, you will receive a free scheme of work written specifically for Key Stages 2 and 3 that explores the concert theme and content. It contains eight individual lessons that can be delivered in the classroom by the class teacher, alongside recordings of some of the repertoire (specially recorded by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra) and additional resources to support the lessons. It will also introduce the performers and provide relevant background information to prepare for your visit.

The Key Stage 2 and 3 scheme of work also includes resources to support the teaching and learning of our specially commissioned song, which the children will sing in the concerts. This will include a video demonstrating the British Sign Language interpretation of the song to teach in the classroom.

The scheme of work allows learners to develop knowledge and skills linked to the National Curriculum and will enhance their experience at the concert. Lessons will be adaptable and differentiated to suit all abilities.
“The scheme of work was varied and engaging, with activities for all types of learners and additional learning suggestions that covered multiple subjects.” – Primary Teacher, Key Stage 2 Schools’ Concerts 2024

We will publish the scheme of work in the months prior to the concerts. It will be emailed to all current bookers at the time of publication.

 


INSET Session

These free sessions will provide an introduction to the scheme of work and accompanying resources. They will offer teachers the chance to develop music teaching skills, and gain confidence in delivering the scheme of work in the classroom.

We will update this website with the INSET session dates once confirmed. We will also communicate the dates out to all bookers via email.


National Museums Liverpool Workshops and Exhibitions

To enhance your visit, our partners – National Museums Liverpool – can offer a wide range of curriculum-linked workshops for schools and groups across five of their museums and galleries. Sessions are led by experienced facilitators who use fascinating collections, inspiring exhibitions and amazing stories to engage your students.

National Museums Liverpool’s venues are home to more than four million objects from across the world. Before or after your visit to the Liverpool Philharmonic, make a day of your trip to the city centre by visiting one of their venues – you can get excited about global history and cultures at World Museum, discover incredible art at the Walker Art Gallery, or learn about Liverpool’s social and maritime history at one of their museums on the waterfront.
