Primary Proms Concert at the Royal Albert Hall

 

On 7th October children from Years 3 and 4 visited the Royal Albert Hall to watch the Primary Proms concert. They saw a wide range of music from folk choirs to sitar ensembles, and enjoyed singing during the audience participation activities. Luca (Year 3/4R) said “The bit I liked the best was seeing the French Horns in the orchestra. I’d never seen them before”.

On 15th September, we invited our peripatetic teachers in to host an assembly where Key Stage 2 children were able to learn about the different instruments. All children in Key Stage 2 have an opportunity to learn to play an instrument in small group lessons and they can currently choose from violin, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone and guitar. Thank you to our very talented team of peripatetic teachers who inspired 70 children to sign up for lessons! We look forward to their first concert.
