Our Year 4 pupils are making fabulous progress on their brass instruments! Take a look at the videos and photographs below to hear and see them playing. Don't forget there is a concert coming up on Monday 1st July at 2.30pm and we would love you to come and listen. We'll also be talking about opportunities to continue learning the trumpet, cornet or trombone in a smaller group next year. Thanks to all the lovely Year 4 parents who are doing a brilliant job helping their child to remember their instruments every Monday and encouraging them to practice at home!

This term the children in Year 4 are having whole class tuition on brass instruments. In their first lesson today, they met Mr Penfold who is a specialist brass teacher that already visits Longfleet to to teach our Year 6 brass pupils. Mr Penfold demonstrated each of the brass instruments to help the children decide whether to play a trumpet, cornet or trombone. Very quickly the children learnt to play their first two notes and each class has the makings of a great brass band already!
After the next lesson all the children will be able to take home an instrument to practice on. This instrument will be theirs for the duration of the project.
Later this week, the Year 4 parents will be recieving a letter telling them a bit more about the lessons and explaining how to look after the instruments.
Wel done Year 4. You're already off to a good start!
