Wide eyed at Bridgewater Hall
Owl class have been learning to play the violin through the Wider Opportunities Programme. All the Owls fluttered off to Manchester last week to watch a concert by the Halle Orchestra which took place in Bridgewater Hall.
They were wowed by the hall as well as the music and came back inspired and full of information about how music paints a picture, just how dramatic music can be – they even used scratch and sniff cards to smell the jungle! A huge screen at the back projected pictures which linked to the music as well as showing close ups of each instrument in the Orchestra. The class also joined in with a song – called Earth Sea and Sky which we will be singing in the Easter Service.
Thank you to the PTFA for making a contribution to this new adventure. We plan for next years Y3 and Y4 to learn an instrument so get ready Y2s!
