Pupils to have fun with folk in new learning programme

Have your say

Two Barnsley schools are to take part in a learning project inspired by a new digital archive of English folk songs, tunes, dances and customs.

Shawcross Primary and Horizon Community College will develop work based on local folk arts sourced from the archive, titled The Full English.

The programme aims to introduce traditional English folk arts, music and dance to a new audience.

Professional folk artists including musicians, dancers and storytellers will lead each project and help pupils develop their ideas.
