Over 60 primary and secondary schools across United Learning are taking part in a special music and performing arts project this term to raise awareness about climate change. Green Love is an ambitious project designed to develop young people’s musical talents and encourage them to think more about the environment and how, together, we can protect it.
As part of this artistic initiative, Year 5 pupils from Embley are joining with pupils from across the country to learn six original songs composed by celebrated musicians Alexander L’Estrange and Joanna Forbes L’Estrange. Pupils are also learning body percussion rhythms to accompany the pieces.
Last month participating schools joined (virtually) to take part in a series of singing and body-percussion assemblies, delivered by Stuart Overington from The Voices Foundation and Ollie Tunmer from the Beat Goes On. Every school will be supported by an expert sound engineer to record the pupils’ performances which will be combined to create an exciting Green Love film, set to premiere during the 2021 Autumn Term.
