Years 4 and 5 visit Saffron Hall – Benedetti
On Friday 24th September, Class 4 and Class 5 went to Saffron Hall for a live session with two tutors from the Benedetti Foundation. Lucy and Elsa did a range of fabulous activities with the children which included singing in rounds, body percussion, listening and appraising and a wonderful performance of ‘Galloway’ a Scottish piece played on the Vibraphone. The children were amazed at the sounds that this created and that Elsa played with two sticks in each hand. The children were encouraged to imagine the story in the music and that everyone could imagine their own story and not be wrong. We then composed our own song with body percussion about the sounds around us – well done to Louisa for leading our school so well in this.
Thank you to Mrs Lawless and Mrs Davies for their help with this trip.
