Classical 100: Teach Primary Resource Award nomination, and our brand new video

2 years ago
Classical 100 nominated for a Teach Primary Resource Award 
We're delighted to learn that Classical 100 has been shortlisted as one of the finalists in this year's Teach Primary Resource Awards.
Run by Teach Primary magazine, the awards look at all kinds of learning resources, this year whittling down over 450 products to just five in each of their 12 categories (we're under 'Music').
The next stage will see the finalists assessed by a panel of primary experts, with their verdicts announced in the magazine's October issue.
Introducing our brand new Classical 100 video
An award nomination isn't the only good news coming from Classical 100 this week. We've also created a short animated video to help bring it all to life. Watch it now.
