Our energetic boys and girls in Years 1 and 2 have been learning to sing in a formal setting with Mrs Sykes, our Vocal and Choir teacher. Each class has a dedicated 45 minute session each week, where students learn specialised singing techniques including diaphragmatic breathing, watching the conductor and using Solfege notes to learn new songs. Here is what a few students had to say about their time in choir:
“I like that we sing funny songs” - Anna, Year 1
“Choir is lots of fun and it makes us get better at singing” - Rebecca, Year 1
“Choir is when we can sing and do performances. We have a lovely teacher” - Rebecca, Year 2
The combined Year 1 and 2 Choir had their first performance at the Easter Assembly on the last day of Term 1.
