We are a Nottingham Music Hubs Silver School!
Music in KS2 (Year 4,5,6) is taught by specialist Music providers from The Nottingham Music Service. The types of instruments played by our pupils are; Clarinet, Trumpet, Trombone.
Some of our Year 5 and 6 children currently attend an Area Band, every Wednesday after school. Pupils who attend an Area Band are given the opportunity to take their Music Medal Exam (Year 5) and their Grade 1 or 2 exam (Year 6).
Mr. Hallett, our Music teacher, teaches Year 3 Recorders and leads the singing assemblies from Foundation 1 to KS2. He also leads the choir. Our Seely Choirs perform at a variety of events including; Sherwood Christmas Lights Switch On, Seely Christmas Fayre, Seely Summer Festival, United Reform Church, The Lord Mayor’s Christmas Carol Service.
Music News – What’s been happening?
In February, everybody enjoyed taking part in Sing Up Day, as part of Red Nose Day. The children dressed up and sang songs to their grown ups in the morning.
In March, our Year 4 pupils took part in The Great Orchestra Experiment at The Nottingham Albert Hall. This was a wonderful opportunity to play as an ensemble. They performed their pieces to parents beforehand in a sharing assembly and Year 3 children were invited to come and watch! Sara King, a singing teacher from the National Music Service, also came to school to lead a Singing session for the Year 4’s, which was fantastic!
Mr. Hallett is working hard, to prepare the Seely Choir for their performance at the Seely Festival in June.
