I am delighted to announce the children will be writing a whole-school song with the aim of recording it as a CD. The project is being funded by the Winchfield Music Festival and will be led by Sue Riggs from the Hampshire Music Service.
We had planned to launch the project with the children when we returned to school after the Easter break. Each class would then have had time to work with Mrs Riggs over a number of weeks to write lyrics for different verses and the chorus before pulling all the parts together to record the song as a CD, ready to launch by the end of term. Due to the current situation, we have had to adapt how the project will come together and Mr Gray has been working with Mrs Riggs to plan an alternative.
On this page of the website, you will find an introductory video from Mrs Riggs, a copy of the backing track for the song and a planning sheet for your ideas. Please follow the instructions on the planning sheet and ensure your ideas are emailed to Mrs Riggs before May 22nd. Mrs Riggs will then compile the ideas and produce the final version of the song. By then, we hope to know more about how and when schools will be reopening and Mr Gray and Mrs Riggs will then work out if we can still record the CD or if we will make the song into a video recording, like many of the collaborative videos of performances I am sure you’ve seen recently on social media. We will keep you informed!
I hope the children are excited about this project and I can’t wait to hear the final song which will be filled with all their wonderful ideas.
