We started our Clarinet lessons with Trafford Music Service this week. Please see the gallery for photos!



These are topics that are linked to what we are learning about in school. They are designed as a 'way in' for you to chat about your child's learning with them. They might form a quick 30 second chat or develop into something bigger, depending upon your and your child's interests.

Monday 24th February

Talk about the sol fa hand symbols and practise them.

Discuss what you've learnt about road safety.

Discuss our Islamic(workshops (after Tues).
