Events this term
Wednesdays groups (Trebles and Advanced group) - Carol Service - Wed 19th Dec
The Advanced and Trebles Recorder groups will be performing alongside the Senior Choir at the annual School Carol Service on Wednesday 19th December. The Carol Service starts at 6pm and it is traditional for families to walk from school to the church by candlelight. As this group is reasonably small and all members play important parts, please make sure your child is able to come as we really do need them!
All children learn the recorder in year 3 at St Mary's. After this, they can choose to join the school recorder club. This is a voluntary lunchtime club and is free of charge.
Pupils learn descant, treble, sopranino, tenor and sometimes the bass recorder.
Pupils who have learnt the recorder at Infant School may join in year 3.

We are trying not to use so much paper as we are mindful of the planet so maybe you could download the PDF and read it from a computer or tablet. A good apple app for this is forScore and for android, try mobilesheets. If you would like a paper copy of your part, please ask Mrs Malone or one of the year 6 prefects.
