The children in Year Four have enjoyed a busy year of music. A highlight was working alongside Manchester Camerata to compose the finale piece for an interschool theatre concert.




Create with Camerata

by The Music Partnership


Year Four have thoroughly enjoyed their opportunity to work with members of the Manchester Camerata in order to compose and perform their own song.


Prior to the visit at school, the children created a list of key words and phrases linked to their theme of 'home' from Roald Dahls book, Matilda. Take a look at the process that we worked through to create our ideas for lyrics.

Peace is in our hearts, now and forever.

Love spills around the house in the cottage.

Love is with Matilda as she has a book.

Love grows on vines in our heart.
