Sibelius Version: 8

I teach music in a primary school. In grade 1+2 we don't use straight music notation. Instead we first establish rhythms via longer/shorter bars (half note = bar twice the length of a quarter note/circle). And the higher the symbol, the higher the note. While I sometimes try to use Sibelius, it's often too much. Usually I just need two bars of lines/dots in my word processor.

Does anyone know a font that would let me draw something like this:

I thought maybe SmuFl/Bravura Text had some options for clusters. But of course clusters are drawn vertically while I need them horizontally. Ideally the font would provide a way to have high and low notes but this could also be faked with copious amounts of tables.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Kind regards
