New BBC Wallace & Gromit Music Competition!
After Wallace & Gromit’s performance at the BBC Proms this summer, primary school children now have the opportunity to create a musical soundtrack for one of 3 specially selected Wallace & Gromit clips!
The lucky winners of the competition will get the very special prize of a visit Aardman Animation’s Bristol studios and a BBC recording of their soundtrack to be broadcast on Blue Peter!
How to Enter
If you’re primary school-aged (years 3,4,5 or 6) and would like to get involved, here’s what you need to do:
1) Ask your teacher to visit the BBC Learning website – there they can access lots of videos, sound effects, downloadable worksheets and lesson plans to get you started in class!
2) In class, you’ll be asked to split up into teams of between 2 and 5, choose your favourite clip and then compose your own mini-film score.
3) You don’t need to be an expert musician – you could play the spoons, create a drum kit out of pots and pans, or hum a tune! The judges are looking for creativity and a final piece of music that adds emotion to the clip you are watching.
4) Once you’re done, your teacher will submit team entries in either video or audio form.
5) The competition opens today and the deadline for entries will be Monday 3 December. All the details you need to enter your musical marvel are at: www.bbc.co.uk/schools/teachers/wallaceandgromit
6) Have fun and good luck!
