World Book Day!
Thursday 7th March 2019
This year the theme has been 'Share a story.'
As a school we shared many stories in a range of ways.
Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 came together to listen to a musical story in the hall.
We watched and listened to 'Peter and the Wolf' by Prokofiev. This piece of music was written specifically to teach children about orchestral instruments.
The children really enjoyed it!
Ask your child what the flute or French horn's represented.
Lucky Year 2 are learning to play the recorder!
Mrs Rafferty is teaching her class to play the recorder.
Come and have a listen!
Recorder Lessons in Year 2
Hampshire Music Services Concert
We hope your childern came home very enthusiastic about musical instruments on Wednesday 19th December?
The whole school had a real treat because the very talented Miss Schwarz from Hampshire Music Service performed and talked to them for an hour.
Miss Schwarz started by playing a bottle! Then demonstrated how to make various pitches of note by cutting holes in the bottle and blowing. She also performed on a range of woodwind instruments including the flute and the clarinet.
If your child is inspired to take up a musical instrument, please speak to Mrs Sherrington or the Office Staff.
12 days of Christmas!
We had a rehearsal today for our annual Christmas Sing-Song.
Mrs Boakes is coming back to play the piano for us next Friday.
We all love this song - the older children take the various parts (with comedy actions!) and the rest of us sing along loudly!
On the 7th day of Christmas.......
