Mini class recitals take place towards the end of each term. The intention behind them is to give all pupils the chance to perform to a small and friendly audience, regardless of ability or confidence level. It is great to see pupils who have never had music lessons, perform on an instrument they have been learning in class, for example, the ukulele or the recorder. It is also brilliant to hear pupils perform songs they have written themselves. And of course, it is wonderful to see students who do learn an instrument flourish and grow in their musicianship over the terms.
This term, each of the junior classes performed as a class, as well the usual solo performances. Year 3 performed ‘The Chicken Cluck Waddle’ on the recorders, and Years 4,5 and 6 performed songs from the musical ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’ by Andrew Lloyd Webber; a musical they have enjoyed learning this term.
