Ten Pieces is an exciting new initiative for primary schools, led by BBC Learning and the BBC Performing Groups, focusing on classical music and creativity. On Tuesday, some children in KS2 went to Cineworld for an exclusive screening of the film. The children were excited to learn more about classical music.
