BBC features our 10 Pieces Music Project!

P1000428Primary 3 & 4 and Primary 7 at Port Ellen recently carried out a joint IDL inspired by the BBC 10 pieces project. The project aimed to inspire a generation of children to get creative with classical music. After an inspiring CPD session with the CAST team, the classes got together to plan their learning, which involved using dance, gymnastics, art, writing, music and animation to express themselves creatively in response to classical music pieces.
Children created abstract art and used Garageband to create body percussion, based on tracks as wide ranging as Mars by Holst and The Hall of the Mountain King by Grieg. Children from both classes then worked together one afternoon to make abstract animations on their Ipads in groups, which were then combined and put together with Mozart’s Horn Concerto. The final animation can be seen on the BBC website HERE
We really enjoyed carrying out this creative project.
