Foundation Stage

Foundation Stage

Foundation Stage voted for their favourite piece of Music and it was the Heitor Villa-Lobos – Bachianas brasilieras No. 2, Little Train of the Caipira (finale). It has a wonderful percussive sound as well as a very full orchestral score, and some super brass playing which imitates the train horn. The tempo begins slowly and builds up gradually until the orchestra (train) is at full speed and the FS children really enjoyed moving around the school being locomotives, carriages and freight trains. The Brazilian side of the music has a carnival feel and we used these colours in both their artwork as well as the streamers they used to emphasize train movements.
