Richard Bacon MP takes part in a
music quiz with pupils at All Saints
Primary School, Winfarthing
SOUTH Norfolk MP Richard Bacon joined children at All Saints Primary School out-of-school club at Winfarthing in a music workshop run by two members of the London Mozart Players and sponsored by Nestle UK.
Violinist Martin Smith and trumpeter Peter Wright led the children in a series of games aimed at having fun with music
and teaching them a sense of rhythm and timing.
Then, using some of the instruments the children had made themselves along with violins, woodwind and percussion instruments, the youngsters took part in a new musical work commissioned by Nestle UK especially for children. Called Rita and the Wolf, the piece was composed by Jonathan Dove with words by children's author Anthony Horowitz.
Mr Bacon, who lists his recreation in Who's Who as 'playing the bongos', said: “This is a splendid way to encourage children to enjoy music. Music has always played an important part in my life and I've had a great time taking part with the children in the workshop”.
The 4Children out-of-school club (formerly known as Kids' Club) has been run at All Saints Primary, Winfarthing for over ten years and is an optional activity at the end of the day for children at the school.
Mr Bacon said: “The range of activities covered by the out-of-school club is excellent and the children obviously enjoy them. The club is also a great help to working parents knowing that their children are being well cared for after school. Headteacher Mrs Elizabeth Rollin is to be congratulated”.
