Every day the Minute of Listening team look forward to getting feedback from the classes taking part. It’s great to hear what children make of the recordings they hear! We will continue to post our favourite bits of feedback on this webpage. Here are a few of our favourite comments. Send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s been a wonderful experience which has enriched the lives of the children. Our school is very multi-cultural with many countries and languages represented. The experience has helped to celebrate the world as a whole and has helped us to develop listening skills and music appreciation with the minimum of planning and preparation. A wonderful resource.
My class looked forward to it every day and it really brought them out of their shell (sometimes the more reserved children were the most expressive) and it brought some great class discussions about the sounds and their drawing responses. For me, seeing the children feel free to express themselves through drawing, movement and language was great and created a great atmosphere in the classroom.
MOL has broadened the children’s experience of sound and music. It has developed their interest and inspired dance and music-making activities. It has introduced many unfamiliar sounds and instruments. It has given them the opportunity to talk about the unfamiliar, share their views and ideas.
