Early morning visitor

Posted by grosvenornews on Tuesday Sep 12, 2017 Under EYFS

This morning the Reception playground had an early morning visitor. Our Nursery children watched quietly as a fox made its way over the school grounds.

We talked about wild animals and how we should never stroke them. We admired his glossy, auburn coat.

We are very proud of our 29 Year 5 and Year 6 graduates this year! They have worked hard to achieve their bronze, silver and gold awards.

Travelling by tuba

Posted by grosvenornews on Monday Jul 10, 2017 Under Music and Performances, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

On Wednesday ‘Travelling by Tuba’ (Chris and Stewart) visited our school. Nursery, Reception, Year 1, 2 and 3 started the day with a concert which took us on a musical journey around the world. We began in Egypt where we learnt about the ocarinas and how they came about. Then we went to Africa where Chris dressed up as a Zulu warrior and performed some African music on a kudu horn. After that we went back 2000 years to roman times learning about how the roman emperor addressed the soldiers with an instrument called a cornu. In Turkey their army used a schnib to address the army and a dumbelik. Some children played the instruments whilst the rest of us marched along to the army music. After all that excitement we journeyed to the far east where we saw the two and a half metre high Tibetan Bhudist Dung encrusted in jewels which was played to thank the Gods for their music. To finish Chris told us all about the Tuba and played us some music with Stewart accompanying on the piano. Some children were also asked to come and join the performance playing some instruments.
Following the assembly, Years 4, 5 and 6 took part in workshops where they learn rhythms and played these on different instruments eventually leading to a whole group performance. It was a great day. Look at all the photos.
Thankyou for all your donations, We raised £170.63 towards the cost.
