Ten Pieces Plus Resources

​Secondary Ten Pieces Plus

Secondary Ten Pieces Plus is a resource for Secondary Schools to help them get the most out of the BBC Ten Pieces initiative.

Commissioned by a consortium of Hubs, led by Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire, these resources have been written by Chris Hiscock, Hilary Miles, Peter Hunt and Deena Day and have been edited by Sue Nicholls.

There are ten stand-alone units, one based on each of the pieces, containing:

  • Teacher pages:
    • Context
    • Musical ingredients
    • Learning activities summary
    • KS3 music curriculum links
    • Key Learning
    • Related listening examples
    • Possible links with other subjects
    • Learning activities - teacher notes
    • Teacher resources (worksheets, scores etc.)
  • Pupil pages (worksheets etc.)
  • Additional Mp3 files as appropriate

The resources have been reproduced on a single DVD and copies will be circulated to all Northamptonshire and Rutland Secondary Schools as part of our strategy to support curriculum Music at KS3.

You can get an idea of the scope of the resources from these sample pages:

Colleagues from other Hubs and individuals are welcome to purchase copies at £12 each plus a small charge for postage and packing. If you would like to order, please contact office@NMPAT.co.uk
