We wanted to create a music curriculum with built-in flexibility, allowing schools to create a sequence of learning that was suitable for their setting. This flexibility is enjoyed by many of our schools because it allows teachers to tailor lessons to suit the needs of the learners in the class. At Out of the Ark, we recognise the importance of each teacher having the opportunity to do this and actively encourage this approach. This is one of the reasons for not producing downloadable lesson plans for our curriculum.
We are always exploring ways to make Sparkyard as useful as possible to teachers and we may revisit this idea in the future.
