4HR and 4B had a BRILLIANT day at the Suffolk County Music Services WCETS Celebration day today!
WCETs stands for "whole class ensemble teaching", which means that a music tutor comes in every week for a year, and teaches the whole class a musical instrument.
There were several other schools at the Celebration, which took place at Colchester Road Baptist Church. The instruments that performed were:
French horns (4B)
We all rehearsed, and then performed to parents in the afternoon. Well done, year 4! We were really proud of you!
Many thanks to our wonderful SCMS tutors, Mr Taber and Mr Whiteman, for making it such a great day.
Suffolk will be alive with the delightful sounds of more than 3,000 young musicians, as Key Stage 2 pupils from primary schools across the county show off their talents to parents, carers, families and friends, celebrating their year of learning a musical instrument.
Children from 96 primary schools begin Suffolk County Music Service’s annual WCET Celebration week of events and between Monday 19 June and Friday 23 June, schools across the county will take part in singing activities and instrumental workshops.
Taught by County Music Service tutors in school, pupils play brass, wind, string, guitar, and percussion instruments. Each celebration will finish with a sharing concert, where all schools will play and sing together as part of a massed band and massed choir in front of an invited audience.
At Rushmere Hall, two classes from year 4, who have been learning clarinet and French horn with SCMS, will be taking part on Friday 23rd June. We can't wait!!!!
We have had great fun learning some Maypole dances in year 3! Learning to count in beats of 8 has really helped us understand the tunes. We have found out that it isn't as easy as it looks, but we have used our skills of listening, concentrating and working as a team to get it right!
