YEAR five pupils at Millbrook Primary and Nursery School have relished taking part in this year’s Halle for Youth project – ‘Back to Nature’.
As part of the activities, youngsters have been involved in various workshops including costume making with the costume designer from the Bridgewater Hall; a sense of smell workshop with the sponsors of the project PZ Cussons; music workshops with musicians from the Halle; and workshops with dancers from the Northern Ballet School.
The project culminated in two concerts at the Bridgewater Hall.
The theme of the children’s performance was grasslands and they performed to music from John Barry’s score to the feature film ‘Out of Africa’.
Miss Helen Shearer, the class teacher, said: “The children have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this project.
“These performances are a fantastic opportunity and an experience we hope they will never forget from their time at Millbrook.”
