Thank you!

Today Brother Ben and Brother Nathan from the Plum Village Buddhist monastery visited Years 1 and 4. They taught us how to be calm and did simple meditations and songs with us. We really enjoyed our sessions and would like to say a massive thank you to both monks…

Year 6 Composers

In their music lessons Year 6 have been learning about leitmotif. This is a tool that composers use to put a thought or picture or feeling into your head. They learnt how to play the theme/leitmotif to Wallace and Gromit and then composed a soundtrack to a soundless video clip of Wallace and Gromit. Today they finished rehearsing and performed. Here’s the soundtrack that the Y6 library group composed and then performed.

Well done to all Year 6 composers!
