Larkrise School on BBC radio

Last week some  children from Toucans class and Peacocks class went to the Wiltshire Music Centre to be part of a BBC radio recording of some songs we have been learning as part of a ‘Singing Together ‘ project . Larkrise was fortunate to be selected to participate along with 400 children from schools across the county . The project which is delivered by Salisbury Arts festival  included opportunities for all children in the 2 classes to participate in a series of  professional musician led workshops at Larkrise . We had all been practicing the singing ,signing and playing percussion with  4 of these songs that were then part of the recording day . You can hear the songs when they are broadcast on June 6th at 11.00 a.m on BBC Wiltshire 103.5FM | 104.3FM.
The songs we participated in were:
Skye Boat Song
Dashing Away with the Smoothing Iron
Cockles and Mussels
Drunken Sailor
Many thanks to all the Larkrise  children who were involved for their enthusiasm and joyful participation and to all the adults who supported them.
