We are very happy to be able to offer Early Birds Music Club and Choir again.
Early Birds Music Club – Starting Thursday 30th September
Running each Thursday morning before school, Early Birds is a chance for beginners to start learning a new instrument in groups.
For half of the session, children learn in a group tuition class by playing level.
For the other half of the session, children have a general musicianship class which varies across the year and includes singing, rhythm work, notation exercises, improvisation and some ensemble playing.
Children are admitted at 8:00am into Rosen Hall, then split into their music tuition groups. Classes end at 8:55am and children go straight to their classrooms.
£65/term for tuition; £20/term for instrument hire
Choir – Starting Wednesday 13th October
The choir is for children in Year 4 – Year 6.
The choir performs at external events throughout the year and is suitable for any child who enjoys singing. This year, we already have the Spirit of Christmas event at Sloane Square in the diary.
Choir takes place in Lloyd Hall. Children will be sent to choir directly after school. Parents should collect their children from the main entrance on Waller Road at 4:30pm.
The children really enjoyed being able to play outside in the rain today. They managed to do lots of painting and using the raindrops and then they played several games of hide and seek. Finally we built an enclosure for all the snails that we found in the garden
It was lovely to welcome new children to nursery today and to see them settle into the routines of the setting. Lots of new friendships were formed as children explored the environment and learnt how to play together.
Just a quick post to share the first KS2 singing assembly in almost 2 years!!
Children and staff alike looked very happy to be meeting communally to share in song and each other’s company.
Mr Barrett gets ready to get ’em singing!
As we return to school, parents understandably have many questions about a wide variety of topics. We wanted to clarify the most efficient way of getting an answer to these enquiries. We are attempting to reduce the volume of emails being sent to the main office as they cannot possibly have all the answers, particularly to class related questions. This, combined with the high number of emails being received, is leading to us being concerned that our families will not be getting the answers they need within an acceptable timeframe.
Below are the best email addresses for a variety of enquiries – the examples given are a best fit and cannot cover every eventuality, please use them as guides.
For the time being, the main office will still be available by appointment only. Please use one of the following email addresses:
General class/learning related enquiries:
Questions about curriculum, home learning, PE kits etc should be sent to the email address that corresponds to your child’s year group:
Nursery – firstname.lastname@example.org
Reception/Year 1 – email@example.com
Years 2 & 3 – firstname.lastname@example.org
Years 4, 5 & 6 – email@example.com
These email addresses will be checked weekly.
For questions regarding inclusion and Special Educational Needs, email the following address:
This address will be checked daily and a response sent within 3 days of receipt.
We would ask you not to contact staff members directly, teachers will not respond to emails that are not sent to one of the addresses listed here.
If you feel your enquiry is urgent then please send to the main email address:
Please think carefully about where to send your email as it will allow us to get the most accurate information back to you.
