Carnival of the Animals

Yesterday students from KS1 and KS2 were visited by two talented musicians from the Hampshire Music Service. Xenia Kasper demonstrated her violin skills and Andy Hunt his piano skills to the children. They performed Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saens.

The students listened to excerpts from Carnival of the Animals and were invited to guess what animals the piece was based on. Children were also invited to take part in dancing and given the opportunity to play percussion instruments, alongside Xenia and Andy.

It was an inspirational assembly!
