Carol Service at St Peter's Church
We were kindly invited to perform at St Peter's Church on Wednesday 20th December as part of their annual carol service. We took along our ocarinas and choir to perform a variety of Christmas songs. The children did fantastic and were supported by many parents and staff which was lovely to see.
Christmas Music Concert
Children in the choir, ocarinas and recorders, performed for parents in our music concert on Friday 8th December. All children performed brilliantly, and I think I am correct in saying that all parents were very impressed with both commitment and talent of our musicians.
Concert at Willowbrook Nursing Home
On Thursday the 18th May selected children from the choir sang a special performance for the residents of Willowbank Nursing Home. Both residents and staff loved the concert and even joined in with some of the songs from well known musicals. Well done to all who came.
Music with Mrs Tomlinson
Children in classes 1 and 2 have been enjoying weekly music lessons with Mrs Tomlinson who is our specialist music teacher. The children have enjoyed learning some new songs. They have also been playing percussion instruments and learning how to change the sound each instrument makes. They have been making them play loudly, quietly, fast and slow.
Spring Music Concert
On Thursday 9th March we held our Spring Musical Celebration. The choir, ocarina groups, woodwind groups and the Class 11 recorders performed a selection of pieces. It was a great opportunity for the children to share their talents. We would like to thank everyone who came to support us.
Spring Music Concert

Well done to Ebony and Joseph for achieving levels 1 and 2 of the woodwind core curriculum on the clarinet. They have both worked very hard in school during their clarinet lessons and in all the extra practice which they put in at home as well. Keep up the good work!
We are very proud of our flute players Emily and Leela for completing levels 1 and 2 of the woodwind core curriculum. They love their flute lessons and their dedication to practicing at home is really paying off. Well done girls!
Well Done Ebony and Joseph!
Joseph and Ebony are thrilled to share the news that they have both passed their clarinet Copper Music Medal exam. They worked hard preparing for the exam and were very nervous on the day. They had to wait a whole week to find out the results, but it was worth the wait! They will be performing together in front of the whole school and parents during the Christmas performance.
