Charivari 2019

Charivari 2019

Thank you to all the families that attended the Charivari parade last Saturday. It was a very hot day but it is a fantastic event to be involved in with the children looking great in their costumes and sounding loud with their whistles!

Music Enrichment Day – Term 6

Music Enrichment Day – Term 6

Wednesday 5th June was our 3rd Music Enrichment Day, with music being a specific focus in our school curriculum this year.

The children were very excited to be privileged enough to enjoy a jazz concert in the Main School Hall led by Matt Miles and his Work8hop band.

The focus for this day was to develop the children’s understanding of musical composition and improvisation as well as some excellent activities planned for them by their teachers in their classes.

Each class had a workshop session with either Matt Miles or Peter Cook, who are both professional jazz musicians and experts in this field.

What a unique experience our children have enjoyed!

Year One had a great time this afternoon creating beautiful flower beds in our outside area and planting peas, beans and sunflowers seeds for us to nurture so we can see who can grow the tallest!
