A quartet from National Champion Foden's has just performed on the BBC 'Live Lessons' children's educational series.
Produced by the BBC, the 30-minute programmes are streamed on-line and are aimed to bring subjects as diverse as music and art to computing and sport to life by featuring some of the BBCs biggest brands and presenters — from Doctor Who to Manchester City footballers — and all during the school day.
The programme involving Foden's was to mark the end of the First World War with a creative writing Live Lesson for primary students.
Designed for 7 — 11 year olds, the Remembrance Live Lesson was hosted by BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty and CBBC's Ben Shires and also featured poet Roger Stevens and Charlotte Czyzyk, a historian and project manager for 'Lives of the First World War' at the Imperial War Museums.
The Foden's players performed a number of related tunes as well as 'The Last Post'.
