This term the whole school has been involved with work on the BBC’s Ten Pieces Project. It is a scheme aimed at introducing classical music to children aged 7–14 and inspiring them to produce their own responses to the music.
We chose Stravinsky’s Firebird as our inspiration. This is a cross-curricular project and the responses of the children have been stunning and very varied. Pupils have produced 3-D art and poetry.
We produced a video in which the children used their artwork to illustrate the story of The Firebird. Older pupils wrote some wonderful poetry which can be seen here.
We will be sharing our work with parents in June. In the meantime, you can see the video on the CBBC website here .
