BBC Philharmonic Orchestra

We were very lucky to have some BBC Philharmonic Orchestra musicians come into our school and work with over 60 of our KS2 children recently. We listened to a whole school assembly where they performed their instruments and taught us a new song with actions. After that the children who were working with them listened to a BBC ten pieces song called No Place Like by a composer called Kerry Andrews.  We then created a soundscape of different ideas about what we think of when we think about home.  We used our instruments to create a variety of sounds and put them all together to create apiece for our orchestra.  In the afternoon we performed it for parents and the rest of KS2.  Choir also had a workshop where they taught us a new song called Heave Ho. It is a sea shanty about a sailor sailing home and choir created their own lyrics to the song.
