How many classes can you work with in a day?

In a day we write 5 songs with your school. One of those is written with the whole school and the other 4 with individual classes. We can also work with 2  or more classes at a time.
Some schools are booking 2 consecutive days, giving every child the opportunity to be a part of the songwriting process.

What happens with the CD?

1 month after our visit we will send the school a finished copy of your Rock The Sport CD, along with digital MP3s to use in PE lessons. Children will also be able to order copies of the CD and for each copy sold, Rocktopus will donate £1 to the school!
