Y4 Musical Legends

Friday, 21 July 2017

On Thursday 13th July, Y4 particpated in Sandwell’s Musical Legends concert at West Bromwich Town Hall. 

During the Summer term they had been learning songs such as Mamma Mia, yesterday Once More and We Will Rock You and performed alongside 3 other primary schools from the Sandwell area. Thanks to Mrs Lowings for practising these songs so successfully with the pupils.

The Town Hall is a very impressive venue to perform in, and lots of our parents came to watch!

KS2 Brass band Summer Performance

Friday, 21 July 2017

To get the final Congrats assembly off to a swinging start, the KS2 brass band played along with their music teacher Mrs Reid.

They played several songs including a March and their favourite ‘Popcorn’ song!

We thank the Y6 musicians who have been learning to play since Y3. We hope that they will continue to pursue musical instruments at their Secondary schools.

There will 4 spaces for instrumental lessons from September. Please see Mrs Woolls, Ms Mensa or the school office if you are interested.
