In a world which is becoming increasingly visually loud, Minute of Listening helps pupils develop their creative listening skills.
This carefully curated collection of 60-second recordings introduces children to a range of music and sounds from Björk to Beethoven, folk music to field recordings. Accompanying resources help enrich all curriculum areas, and follow-up questions encourage children to discuss what they heard, thought and felt.
