    This week things are getting dramatic.
    Become a mythical warrior and practice your acting skills with a drama workshop inspired by Ride of the Valkyries from Wilhelm Richard Wagner’s opera Die Walküre.
    Below you will find weekly activities for primary schools, home educators and parents to share with their students. Each includes a Ten Pieces film to watch and enjoy and a linked creative ...
    Watch the Ride of the Valkyries introductory film and find out more about Wagner’s epic opera and the mythical Valkyries with Christopher Eccleston. Then explore the character of the mythical warrior women called Valkyries through drama. They get to choose who wins and who looses.
    Why not make an instrument out of recycled materials - take a picture of it for us to see.
  • If your child is interested in Classical Music have a look at some of the amazing graphical scores on the internet:
    eg type 'graphical score moonlight sonata' in to your search engine and watch the video. Please be aware that adverts might come up.
  • There are lots of resources for children on CBBC here are some children's games and quizzes . There is an amusing History of Music video.
  • If your child is interested in composing their own piece try this idea. No instruments are needed.
  • The Ten Pieces website is a treasure trove for music. You can watch child friendly versions of classical pieces and then try some of the activities yourself. For example: play a piece to your children and ask them to draw a picture of what they think the music is representing. This is suitable for Reception, KS1 and KS2 children.
Keep singing!
