Reflection on John Lennon and what he achieved
Today marks forty years since the death of John Lennon. Our sixth form students have been remembering John Lennon in their Learning for Life lesson with a presentation and discussion about his legacy. Evoking an atmosphere of his amazing music, Unity Shrimpton and Archie Forbes performed a beautiful rendition of Imagine as the soundtrack for the video. (Unity: vocals, piano and guitar, Archie: bass, vocal and mixing). Please do spare a few minutes to watch the video at HERE and hear Unity and Archie’s outstanding performance.
John Lennon’s anthem for peace has withstood the test of time and the impact of the song is unquestionable. Students are spending time looking at whether the messages are still relevant today in their class discussions. Students are also having an insight into Beatlemania and how the Beatles have influenced music since the 1960s.
