Each week, I will regularly play the children some music - from many different time periods. The children have asked me to keep an updated list here, so that they can listen again to particular favourites.

A stunning introduction to our topic for the summer term!

Reich - Music for Pieces of Wood

An incredible machine, to link our science, music and PE topics!

More dancing animals to inspire the children with their take on animals and music.

Autumn Week 2: The theme music from Jurassic Park. This needs no introduction to any of you, and it is one of the finest examples of John Williams wonderful film music output.
"Without John Williams, bikes don't fly, and neither do brooms in Quidditch matches, nor do men in red capes. There is no Force, dinosaurs do not walk the earth. We do not wonder, we do not weep, we do not believe." - Steven Spielberg
Autumn Week 0/1: The Impossible Orchestra playing Danzon No. 2. Quite simply the best remote project that I saw come out of the classical musical world during lockdown. https://youtu.be/tLMtAjXOKTU
