Top points for Eurovision songwriters on Zoom with Loseley Fields pupils

Though it was bad news again for the UK at the Eurovision song contest last week, it was good news for Year 4s at Loseley Fields School in Binscombe who were treated to a Zoom with two Eurovision songwriters.

Year 4 are using the Eurovision Song Contest as the backdrop for their geography topic this half term, which is Eastern Europe.  They started the topic by pretending to go through an airport and onto a plane flying over Eastern Europe and the children have also made their own musical instruments.

Teachers set up a Zoom call with two Eurovision songwriters, Pete Barringer and his songwriting partner, Greig Watts.  They have written several songs for Eurovision, including this year’s entry for Malta, which came seventh (it came first on the more important Year 4 scoreboard). Pete has also written over 1,500 songs in his career as a musician!

Philippa Leah, Year 4 teacher said: “The children had enthusiastically listened to and scored all the songs before the competition, so it was great for them to meet Pete and Greig.  They asked lots of questions about how they came to be involved in the contest, and how many songs they have written.”
