music at seely
We are a Nottingham Music Hubs Silver School!
Music in KS2, years 4, 5 and 6 is taught by the Nottingham Music Service. The children get the amazing opportunity to learn the clarinet or the trumpet.
This year, we have a record number of 16 year 5/6 pupils from Seely attending Area Band every Wednesday after school. Pupils attending this are given the chance to take their Music Medal exam in year 5 and their grade 1 or 2 in 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. We have also begun to introduce recorders into year 2 and Mr Hallet has also been teaching the music curriculum to the Foundation Stage children.
This year we are beginning a KS 1 choir which will begin rehearsing after Christmas. Along with the already established KS2 choir, we hope to showcase our talents around school and our local area.
Our exciting news is that we have been selected as one of the schools to represent Nottingham in the Children In Need choir. Twenty of our very talented year 5 and 6 children will be singing live on the BBC1 fundraising show on Friday 17th November. This will be broadcasted from the Albert Hall Nottingham. Tune in and look out for some familiar faces!
