| Year 4

This term, Year 4 have been working on a combined music and drama project. The children have been studying “The Ring Cycle” by Richard Wagner, looking at how different instruments portray events.

Having learned about the story of “The Ring Cycle” and how Wagner based it on Norse mythology, they have listened to extracts of it and analysed how both characters and events have been portrayed using a wide range of musical devices.

Next, they broke the story down into short segments, and have begun to devise their own pieces of drama, adding their own musical compositions to create their own class version of the story.

Watch a short clip below of one drama piece put together by the Year 4 children!
