I must start the New Year by congratulating all the children who were involved in the Bury Hospice Carol Service at Bury Parish Church. The Hospice have written a letter of thanks to each school, and the total raised from this event was £2000. This is an amazing amount of money and thanks go to all the parents and staff who supported this event. The choral group also sang beautifully when we took them to Spurr House. The children thoroughly enjoy performing for the elderly people and we will definitely be making a return visit before the end of the school year.
This term I will continue to work with Y2 and 3, teaching ocarina and recorder. Brass lessons and Fidler music will recommence from January 10th. Please remember to bring your instrument to school each Tuesday. As the weather is due to turn quite cold, please do not leave Brass instruments in car boots for long periods as the valves will freeze up!
In our Big Sing we will be learning songs about Technology and Internet safety, not forgetting to celebrate the Chinese New Year through song at the end of January. Always check the school ‘Twitter’ as we often share the children’s singing for you to enjoy.
A new singing group will be formed for any interested children in Years 5 and 6 and more information will follow about this in due course. We are hoping to collaborate with some local school choirs before the end of the school year and share our joy of singing with our neighbouring schools.
If you have any queries or questions about Music at Unsworth, please feel free to pop in and have a chat, I am here every Tuesday.
