Britten - The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra
This article includes resources to prepare children for, or work with them in response to the LPO's Key Stage 2 BrightSparks concert that took place on Tuesday 7 May 2019. Even if you did not attend the concert, you can still use the PDF Teachers' Pack to deliver creative composition projects in class, based on Benjamin Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra and ‘Dawn’ from Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes.

At the concert, the audience was invited to join in with 'Heave Ho!', a fun sea shanty. Sheet music and lyrics sheet can be found at the back of the Teachers’ Pack above. You can listen to the song on Soundcloud via the link below:
