Music, Music, Music!

Music Assemblies

Children in Key Stage One and Two have really pulled out all the stops this year,

with children performing every week in both assemblies. The performances

have varied from classical violin to classic rock anthems on the drums (and

everything in between!) Children who are just starting out on their

instruments and the more experienced musicians have both had the

confidence to play in front of a live audience.

Talbot Key Stage Two Choir

This year has been an exceptionally busy year for the choir. We have

performed for a wide range of audiences, including the congregation of St

Andrew’s Church and the senior citizens at a local residential home. We are

currently planning an afternoon of music, song and afternoon tea for the

senior citizens from different groups in the area, which we are all really

looking forward to.

The biggest event by far, however, has been our involvement in the Young

Voices concert at Sheffield Arena. Over thirty children rehearsed the songs

for three months before travelling down to Sheffield Arena in January.

Banners at the ready, they sang with over 5,000 children to a packed

audience. The singing was incredible and the children did themselves and the

school proud with their singing and their fantastic attitude and behaviour.

We are already signed up for Young Voices 2018 and can’t wait to get started

on the new repertoire.

Collaborative Music Project

This year, groups of children from Years Four, Five and Six have taken part in collaborative music projects

with Allerton Grange School, Gledhow Primary and Moor Allerton Hall Primary.

Our first project, in the Autumn term had a samba theme, and children got to use a variety of different

instruments. The children attended many rehearsals and created their own samba piece as a group. This

then lead to a big performance at Allerton Grange School.

In the Summer term the project had a twist, and involved the children creating a story to tell through music.

The four schools created a story about a character called Duncan the Duck, who lived in Gledhow Valley

woods! The children then created adventures for Duncan and pre-recorded specific sounds for their story,

using a range of objects such as crisp packets, voices and much more. This was a fantastic experience, as the

children got to create sounds with everyday objects. They then performed their work at Gledhow Primary

School.

We are looking forward to seeing what future projects have in store!
