Year 4 are taking part in a spectacular project of a lifetime! It is called “Ring Around the World” and it is a huge children’s opera that celebrates the London 2012 Olympics. Over 200 London schools will be taking part in the performances. The shows form part of the cultural olympiad.
We have an important role to perform. Firstly we will be singing some of the songs that have been specially composed for this event but more importantly we will be working closely with professional artists from English Pocket Opera Company to compose a song and create a dance inspired by the music and traditions from 2 different countries.
That is where this blog comes in. We are going to use it in several different ways.
1. To help us research our chosen countries. We will be encouraging visitors to leave us comments telling us about their experiences of the countries we are studying.
2. The blog will help us keep a record of our learning. We are going to ask the professional artists who are working with us to follow our progress when we are back at school.
3. It will allow our audience to give us feedback on our performance!
We are really looking forward to reading your kind and helpful comments!
