Our school piano has had a makeover from all the children in the school. The previous piano cover had protected and decorated our piano for many years but it had been repaired so many times it needed replacing. The children, with the help of local artist Kerry Cook, designed and made a new cover for the piano which reflected all the elements of our school and our community. Every child contributed and added a piece of work to the collage. Well done to everyone who took part!
The children all got into the Christmas spirit at the end of the Autumn term by having a Rock Band visit the school. At first, the children sat very smartly listening carefully to the string of famous songs but it wasn’t very long before children and staff alike were dancing away! The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all the children and staff. Thank you to Chris Little and his band for giving us such a lovely start to the holidays!
The children across KS2 all has the opportunity to try out some brass instruments with Mr Hamilton to see if they would like to learn to play. Many of the children loved the idea of playing a brass instrument.
The addition of brass instruments to our music tuition classes has proven very popular. The children are loving the opportunity to play some lovely instruments. Currently we have two groups having lessons on a Wednesday(a tenor horn group and a cornet group) however Sunderland Music Hub have be kind enough to buy us some further instruments so we can start another group very soon. During the last week of half term, I was able to pop into the lessons and was very surprised as to how much the children can play already. They are obviously practising hard-well done!
