We had a special assembly  today where we learnt about the French Horn, Oboe, Clarinet and Flute. We listened to some beautiful live music and had the opportunity  to ask  lots of questions.

The children in Y2 have been learning about the composer Prokofiev. He was Russian, and he composed the music for a story called Peter and the Wolf. We enjoyed listening to the story on a 'record player' and then we drew the characters and the musical instruments that represented them in the story.
