This morning, we had a special assembly held by Ms Beaumont, the Strings teacher for Oxfordshire County Music Service. With her amazing NKS assistants, Beatrice and Hannah, Ms Beaumont treated us to some wonderful violin playing. Some children from years 2-6 were invited up to have a go at plucking on a violin and then accompanied Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star with their new-found skills.
The assembly finished with everyone stamping and clapping along in time to a rendition of We Will Rock You. It was great fun.
If your child is interested in taking up a stringed instrument, we do have lessons in school provided through the service. Ms Beaumont is looking to set up a couple of group lessons which is a much more affordable way of introducing your child to an instrument. If you are interested, we have flyers in the office.
