On the morning of Wednesday 5th July 2017, Year 4 children from both Sapcote and Sharnford schools travelled to De Montfort Hall, Leicester, to take part in the Stops Away! Organ workshop. We really enjoyed listening to two world class organists play from the Carnival of the Animals. The audience was involved in many ways, such as singing along to the song 'Ode to the Organ' and making movements and gestures to accompany the music.
Beforehand we had been asked to submit artwork and creative writing based on the Carnival of the Animals and we were delighted to see a presentation of our super artwork as we entered the hall. During the workshop, we were further delighted to spot a number of our poems being read aloud to accompany the parts of music being played. Some of the examples of our art and writing that was chosen are here to see. A great morning was enjoyed by all (and Mrs Allen's favourite 'The Aquarium' was beautifully played too! :)
