Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, 19th June 2019
On Wednesday 19th June, the whole school had the opportunity to experience a live performance from an orchestra. The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra performed their annual live stream from the BIC in Bournemouth, with thousands of children watching over the internet via the live stream.
The orchestra conductor had developed during participatory elements, including Makaton actions and body percussion for the children to learn in advance of the performance. Mrs Rae and Mrs Barrand taught the children the participation elements during singing assembly so they were able to join in for the live performance.
The theme of the performance was Space and Exploration, marking the 50th anniversary of landing on the moon. The Year 5 children were particularly interested in this following on from their learning challenge topic of Space earlier in the year.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance, which ticks off one of our Court Lane Crystals, and eagerly await next years’ live stream!
