Carnival of the Animals

Watch our version of this famous composition.

During World Cup Week we researched the French composer, Camille Saint-Saens who wrote “The Carnival of the Animals”.

We listened to the music and tried to guess which animal each piece was depicting. We discussed why the composer had chosen certain instruments.

Then we drew our own animals and wrote a description of them.  We used this description to select appropriate instruments and compose our own “Carnival of the Animals”.
