Ahoy there! Minster create and record their very own sea shanty...
Minster-in-Sheppey Primary school have continued to celebrate their commitment to the arts following their recent Artsmark award by undertaking an exciting project with their Year 6 pupils.
The project was devised by Theatre 31 and Paper Balloon Theatre and their professional artists, to write and perform an original sea shanty highlighting Sheppey's long established maritime heritage.
Over the course of 4 weeks, the pupils brainstormed and shared ideas for their shanty working with award-winning composer Darren Clark who took their ideas, helped them produce their song and make a music video.
Our pupils had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Here are some of their comments:
Polly Mills, Year 6 pupil commented, "I loved writing and making my own song by brainstorming ideas and Darren turning them into verses on his guitar."
Rhianna Roynolds, Year 6 shared, "I loved the freestyle dancing and seeing everyone's flips and tricks!"
Charlie Page in Year 6 added, "I liked the dancing with a group and learning the dance."
Mr Jeffery, Year 6 teacher who participated in the project said, "The artists had a very clear vision and made each session enjoyable and exciting for their pupils."
