Pieces of junk were made to go pink, plank and plunk for a day of special music lessons.
Pupils at Cookham Dean CE Primary School were treated to a series of workshops on Friday.
The sessions were run by the Ding Foundation, a collaboration between a composer and a designer who make their own sets and instruments to create the specific sounds they want for their performances.
The activities are intended to make youngsters take a fresh look at everyday objects they would normally throw away and consider instead what new role they could find for them.
And with just a few pointers they were able to bring the class together into a junk orchestra.
Year five teacher Penny Thompson said: “It was a fantastic day.
“The children made a variety of instruments out of all sorts of junk and produced all sorts of sounds.”
She continued: “It was a great opportunity to do something different.”
