Y5 and Choir Music Assembly

Today we have enjoyed our fabulous music assembly! Year 5 showed off their amazing drumming and brass skills that they have been working on all year.

We we were delighted to enjoy a performance from our Halliwell Hooters. These children have had extra tuition in brass instruments and have built up their skills over the year.

Finally, we were treated to Choir showcasing their talents as they sung ‘Deep Down In My Soul’ and ‘This Is Me’.

Well done to our fantastic, talented children and thank you so much to all of our parents who could come to watch and support.

Here are some of the highlights of the performance:

KS2 Music Assembly

Today, we have enjoyed music performances by Year 5 and the School Choir. Every year, Year 5 have the opportunity to learn to play the djembe drum and a brass instrument, led by specialist music teachers, Mr Bamford and Mr Dunkley. They were able to show off the skills they have been learning all year to their parents.

One of the songs they performed was Mammia Mia – combining the skills of brass, drumming and singing:

KS2 Christmas Show

Wow, what an amazing show! Key Stage 2 have completed their four performances of ‘A Song for Christmas’. It was no mean feat getting all 210 children in Key Stage 2 up on stage, but the result was absolutely fantastic! Each year group sang a song they have been working on since October. The choir were able to perform, including the senior choir, and the whole Key Stage joined together in singing two songs as well.

Thank you so much to all the parents who came, the KS2 staff for their tireless efforts and FS and KS1 staff for their support as well. A huge well done to all the children for working so hard. Now we just need to get those catchy songs out of our heads!

Music Assembly

Today, we held our annual Music Assembly, where our parents got the opportunity to see the Oxford Grove Choir singing their music festival songs and the Year 5 parents got to see what they have been learning in their music instrument lessons this year.

Mr Bamford was so impressed with the Year 5 children this year and all their hard work learning brass instruments and the djembe drums!

After the assembly, the children got to spend some time with their parents. Thank you so much to everybody who could make it to watch the children.
