Shots Fired

This song is part of the larger ‘In Our Own Words’ resource based on The Full English Extra project with the National Coal Mining Museum for England and the Wakefield Music Education Hub.  It was used in a project working with Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils.

'Shots Fired' was written using information from the activities in the Featherstone Detectives lesson box loaned from the NCMME. It tells the story of a real event known as 'The Featherstone Massacre'.

Audio recordings of all the songs presented in this resource are freely available for download from the Audio tab at the top of this window.
