Amazing Musical Soundtracks in Y5!

1st December 2017
The Year 5 children composed and performed soundtracks during music lessons this term. As part of their work on World War Two, they read the incredibly powerful book Rose Blanche, by Roberto Innocenti and Christophe Gollaz. The text - translated into english by Ian McEwan - tells the story of a young German girl who discovers a secret in the woods near her home. 
 
Within their classes, the children worked together to compose a soundtrack that captured the mood of the different stages of the story. They performed it together using a range of tuned instruments and percussion. Here are the performances from Mrs Pixley's and Mrs Geeson's classes.
