Age of enlightenment (4)

Our Reception and Nursery children had a special visit last week from Cherry and Cecelia - members of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

Cherry brought with her some recorders and an oboe and Cecelia played the double bass.

They took the children on a magical journey exploring different songs using music from the Baroque and Classical periods of music. The children enjoyed conducting Cherry to the pasta song from Italy and had to keep up with a runaway train!

Mrs Hayden was very impressed by the children’s listening skills and Cecelia was amazed at the number of children who correctly identified her instrument.

On Monday our children in Nursery, Year 2 and Year 3 were treated to a fantastic workshop with Billy Hickling from 'The Trash Bang Man'. Billy has been Musical Director for the stage show STOMP! So the children had lots of fun learning new rhythms to play and even a few tricks with beaters. All the instruments were made from recycled materials proving you can make music with just about any old junk! They loved making lots of noise.

A lovely musical finish to an unusual year!
