Week commencing 8th June 2020

Hello Swallows


This week we are looking at a famous music composer called Camille Saint-Saens and in particular, at a piece of music he composed called Carnival of the Animals.  Saint-Saens composed this piece of music for fun in 1888 and refused for it to be published during his lifetime (while he was alive).  When Saint-Saens died in 1921, this piece of music was then published and Carnival of the Animals became one of his best known works.

Several of the movements have been used in Disney films such as Beauty and the Beast and Fantasia 2000.  


We hope you enjoy learning about Camille Saint-Saens and listening to his music.  Most of the clips in the tasks are from YouTube so please make sure you ask an adult permission before watching the clips. 


Don’t forget to send us your emails and photos of what you’ve been up to this week!


Take care
