Foundation Stage voted for their favourite piece of Music and it was ‘Earth’; composed by Hanz Zimmer. It has a wonderful percussive sound as well as a very full orchestral score. The children also liked the sound of the children singing who accompanied the piece and were wearing green and blue like the colours of the Earth.
The children really enjoyed moving to the music during PE sessions as we imagined we were astronauts travelling in space and looking back at the Earth from our rocket. The children commented that the music made them feel happy and calm and we enjoyed listening to the piece of music during our art sessions and responding with different medium. We have enjoyed exploring different media to make Earth collages and creating chalk planets on black card.
It was lovely to have time to focus on music and movement and the children really enjoyed the 3 day experience.
