Lewis Class's Music Day - BBC Ten Pieces
Lewis Class were really creative in our response to Carl Orff's well-known piece of music ‘O Fortuna' from Carmina Burana. We drew images that the music conjured up in our imaginations - from dinosaurs fighting, to ships tossed on stormy seas, to wars on the battlefields. We learned about the Roman goddess, Fortuna (goddess of fortune and luck) and thought about destiny and fate. After drawing what we imagined Fortuna to look like, we came up with power poses we thought she might strike. We opened our performance piece with these poses. This was followed by choral singing in Latin and self-choreographed dance routines plus experimentation with pulse and pitch using our super collection of percussion and pitched instruments. A very busy, energetic and creative day in Year 3 today!
