The pupils of Mrs Finn’s Year 4 class at Archbishop of York’s CE Junior School in Bishopthorpe sang and drummed very heartily yesterday as they learned ‘Compost: the (mini-)Musical – A Load of Old Rubbish!‘
I spent the morning with the children teaching them my musical. Composting expert Dr Keely Wannop (also known as Keely Mellor!) was on hand to answer any composting questions the children had. Dr Wannop, who runs the school’s Gardening Club, even brought in some compost fresh from her garden (complete with worms!)
The previous day the children had beautifully decorated three compost bins that we used as drums in the musical. Here are form teacher Mrs Finn, student teacher Mr Robinson and compost expert Dr Wannop with the children’s bins:
The children will be performing the musical to the whole school in assembly next week. I’m looking forward to it lots!
