Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM)
The ISM have prepared some fantastic resources for schools on progression and assessment in music. Their website is really worth a look. Lots of thought provoking ideas and practical suggestions.

This is a great resource for warm ups and lesson ideas using contemporary music. Although it has a bit of a secondary feel to it the resources are ideal for key stage 2. Some wonderful ideas for transition projects

This is an Australian website that has lots of materials for secondary schools but don’t be put off.There are a lot of fee materials that would be great to use in primary.
