Whole Child Project Review – Song writing

Friday 29th March saw the culmination of the song writing component of this year’s Whole Child project which took place during Term 3 and 4.

During Term 1 and 2 children from all the Trust schools worked with Leigh Wolmarans on developing a range of Drama skills and this culminated in 5 children from each school collaborating together for a further 2 days to create and rehearse a presentation that highlighted the importance of the key values that are embedded across the Nene Education trust schools.  The presentation was then performed to all Trust schools in one busy touring day. It was now the turn of our musicians to take part in the song writing project.

John Bowman, a professional songwriter, visited all schools and worked with whole classes to write, rehearse and record their own song that celebrated the importance of respecting the individual characteristics of every individual child. After each of these day visits 5 unique songs were created.
