Further to my post on 23 January re Y3/4 Guitar…thought i’d let you know we have managed to secure the same deal for our Y5/6 class…they were insanely jealous last week and asked me to do what I could for them!!
They started their lessons yesterday and are now looking forward to a combined guitar concert with Y3/4 at the end of this term (that’s assuming they will all be able to play tunefully by then)!
I’ll let you know concert dates as soon as we have some!
A new government initiative seeks to ensure all primary school children have the chance to learn to play a musical instrument and, with effect from today, our Y3/4 class will begin a ten week course in guitar.
Mr Oliver will teach the class, ably supported by our very own Kathryn Martin!
An hours lesson will take place every Thursday afternoon. All children will be provided with a guitar although, if children already have guitar lessons (either with Brad in school, or outside of school), they are welcome to bring their own guitar in each week.
There is no cost to parents for this tuition. Should your child wish to continue guitar after the ten week period, Brad Overton is always willing to take on new students. He teaches in school every friday. For me details pop in and talk to Sue Wood or me!
Each year we run an after school Maths class for a few weeks to help prepare our Y6 children for the SATs tests in May. In order for the classes to work best, we do need your support; see the attached letter and please return the slip by the deadline. Many thanks
The children at Isham this year performed an excellent production of Bethlehem Baby. The entire school acted and sang beautifully to tell the nativity story. Take a look at the gallery below to see some snapshots of their performance!
