Posted by admin in : History, Music , trackback

Heroes of Troy, from the BBC School Radio service, is a music resource for school children aged 9 to 11 and offers 7 songs to learn, each linking to an episode of the Trojan War. The website is audio-based, but also includes Teachers’ Notes, words and music for the songs and backing tracks. Well-known music presenter David Grant is on hand to teach all of the songs. It’s intended to target a range of music objectives at Key Stage 2 but also links to the history topic Ancient Greece while offering opportunities to link music with literacy and performance.
