Music and Performance
Congratulations to our Bursary students!
Every week, children in Years 4, 5 and 6 have been enjoying trumpet lessons at St Mary's. The culmination of their music lessons this year was a wonderful concert enjoyed by the whole school. In addition, we are very proud that 2 of our students have been awarded a Bursary, in order for them to be able to access additional lessons and to support them to make even more progress in learning to play an instrument.
African Drumming 2021 - Whole School workshops and performance
Every child enjoyed a fantastic workshop before our most talented drummers rehearsed and performed to the whole school.
Some of our Most Able artists enjoyed extension workshops with a local artist. They used clay to explore artwork from different cultures and historical periods, you can see their finished artwork displayed around the school.
Working in partnership with a local charity, we are delighted that the children of St Mary’s will be able to enjoy a whole year of African drumming workshops.
These will be offered to our Year 3 children and also to all children in KS2 as an after-school club.
The children will be learning from an experienced and talented performer. Concerts in partnership with the local community (including a local centre for elderly people) have been planned for the Summer Term.
