Learning a musical instrument - we have a number of experienced peripatetic music teachers who visit the school and teach a variety of instruments during the school day.  Currently we offer lessons in piano, violin, singing, clarinet, saxophone, flute, trumpet, bassoon, trombone, french horn, guitar and drum kit. Please contact Mrs smith via the school office to discuss which instrument might be suited to your child.

Choir is open to all children in Years 4, 5 and 6 who are warmly invited to attend choir practice on Thursday lunch times from 12.30-1.00. The choir has recently performed at the Assembly Halls, and regularly supports school productions. They have brought great enjoyment by singing carols at our local nursing home. Miss Line welcomes new recruits.

School Orchestra meets on Tuesday lunchtimes in the Autumn and Summer terms, when we prepare for the Christmas production and the Summer concert.  All children are welcome, usually from Y3 upwards.  At the Christmas carol service, over 75 children played in one band or another! Please speak to Mrs Smith if you are interested in joining in.

Steel Pans Bands We are lucky enough to have a complete set of full-sized steel pans at school. There are currently three Steel Pans Bands – two for beginners which meet either during the school day  or after school on Wednesdays, and a senior Steel Pans Band which rehearses during the school day on Wednesdays.  From September 2016 Mrs Smith will be teaching steel pans on Tuesdays and there will then be 3 bands called Beginners, (y4), Intermediate (Y5) and Senior (Y6) . The Steel Pans Bands perform at least once a term and can be heard at the summer fete. There is a small fee for joining this club.

Singing Group is for our younger singers in Years 2 and 3, and is run by Mrs Bone on Wednesday lunchtimes. We sing well-known songs, as well as songs from musicals and some lesser known, more challenging, songs and rounds. Year 1 children are invited to attend towards the end of the spring term. Please come and see Mrs Bone if you’d like to join.
