In Year 6, we are learning about Classical Music and 2 pieces in particular:
Ludwig Van Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Edvard Grieg's 'In the Hall of the Mountain King'. We are learning key information about the composers and listening to and appraising the pieces of music.
We are then developing our own creative responses to the music - including using body percussion and a variety of instruments to create a soundtrack to a well-known story.
Check out this impressive body percussion version of Beethoven's 5th Symphony...
And here's the link to the BBC 10 pieces website so you can watch the pieces being performed by a professional orchestra.
