On Saturday 20th May, Year 6 experienced the 1960s first hand as part of their Music and History studies about John Lennon and the Beatles. Using artefacts and costumes on loan from the Cheltenham museum, and videos and music recordings from the period, pupils were immersed in the era. Mr Arman and Mrs Taylor led sessions which included a whole class version of ‘Juke Box Jury’, a Beatles singalong, exploring artefacts and learning about the cultural and musical influences of the Beatles. Pupils can now return to 2017 where they have just started rehearsing their own group versions of ‘Let it Be’ in Music and are now learning about the CND movement in History.
Wycliffe has most definitely gained a lot of new Beatles fans!
