Music History 2

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 History for children aged 5, 6 and 7 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with studying the lives of significant individuals or people in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements.

In KS1 History children look at people whose achievements have contributed to national or international history. Music is one area where people are able to contribute to national culture. Studying the history of music allows young children a glimpse into the past and helps them learn about the lives, times and achievements of composers and musicians they may be unfamiliar with.
