Reception Paint by Music

Thu, 8 Feb 2018

The Reception children were tasked with painting their responses to a piece of classical music in their lesson with Mrs Reynolds on Thursday. After listening carefully to the piece the children talked about the images that it had conjured up and how it had made them feel. Next they painted along to the music, adding colours and patterns to represent the sound. At the end of the session the children found out that the music had been ‘Mars’, taken from ‘The Planet Suite’, composed by Holst. They were very proud of their work and how it had captured the colour and drama evoked by the music.
