Year 5 and an Ensemble of Instruments

Mr Brazil is getting more and more excited as Year 5’s instruments will soon be arriving. After half term every child in Year 5 will be learning an instrument with the support of a professional community musician, a specialist from the Music service, Mr Brazil and Mr Collins. There will be an hour a week for 15 weeks of tuition and then a performance to celebrate. The instruments are given to the school for free. Children in Year 4 should watch closely as they will have a turn to learn an instrument when they move into Year 5.

Year 6 enjoyed an interesting visit to the Royal Pavilion on Thursday morning. They listened to lots of fascinating facts about the history of the Pavilion and then enjoyed an opportunity to explore the building.
