After over 18 months of COVID restrictions preventing us from singing in school, it has been fantastic to hear the sound of singing filling our corridors once again.

Children from Year 1 all the way up to Year 6 have been rehearsing their Christmas songs for our carol concert and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Each year group has already been filmed singing their song, so watch out for the concert coming soon to a smart phone, tablet or computer screen near you!

Children in Early Years have also worked incredibly hard to learn all the songs for their Christmas production ‘Away in a Manger’. Parents have been able to come into school (socially distanced and masked) to watch their children perform over four separate performances this week. We thought the children would be exhausted but they have taken it all in their stride and still seem to have plenty of energy left!

Year 2 have just completed a very Christmassy unit of Music work named ‘Ho, Ho, Ho!’ They have really enjoyed learning to sing the song and have even performed the rap sections. The rapping was very tricky to begin with as it was so fast, but they soon got the hang of it. They learned to play some notes on the glockenspiels to accompany it too.

Meanwhile, Year 4 have been getting into some pop music! They have been learning about the music of Abba in their Music unit ‘Mama Mia!’ They have learned the song ‘Mama Mia as well as accompanying it on glockenspiels.

Another music video for you to look out for is our Year 4 and Year 5 pupils performing, A Christmas Jingle. The school has invested in instruments for every child in Year 4 and 5 so they do not have to share. You can see them playing clarinets, trumpets and even trombones!

They have only recently started learning to play these instruments but already sound fantastic together. We cannot wait to see their talents develop over the year.

We hope you enjoy your children’s performances and that you find some time to belt out some festive songs too. After all, singing is great for our mental health and is something you can enjoy doing with the whole family!
