Music in School

Music in School

On Wednesday we welcomed Heather Wrighton and Rosanna Ter-Berg into school to perform a harp and flute concert. This was followed by a workshop for some of our KS2 children. All the children and staff enjoyed the performance.
In addition to the overall objective which was to widen our understanding and appreciation of a wide range of music, the benefits of listening to music are well documented and include:
  • increase in happiness
  • an increase in overall health
  • improved sleep
  • strengthening of learning and memory
 
Thank you Year 5 for your responses  to the concert, which are on display in the hall and have also been forwarded to Rosanna and Heather.
