City of Leeds Youth Music Proms

On Tuesday, a group of Year 3 children went to Pudsey Civic Hall. They had a very exciting time listening to Youth Music Proms.

They experienced performances from three of the senior City of Leeds Youth Music groups made up of some of the best young musicians from across Leeds:

· City of Leeds Youth Orchestra Strings

· City of Leeds Youth Wind Orchestra

· LYJRO (Leeds Youth Jazz-Rock Orchestra)

Choir perform at the CCJ Spring Concert

On Wednesday 13th March, our ACE Choir hosted the CCJ Spring Concert. It was wonderful to come together with the choirs of Brodetsky and Highfield Primary Schools to enjoy singing and celebrate our diverse school communities. This was the fourth CCJ (Council of Christians and Jews) concert, the last one in 2019, and we were honoured and excited that the Lord Mayor of Leeds was compere for the night. 

We were so proud of our ACE Choir who gave stunning performances of One and a Million and Touch the Sky. All their hard work paid off and it was a joy to see their confidence and smiles. 

We really loved the performances from Brodetsky and Highfield and it was a special moment when the three choirs performed the massed finale, Sing. 

Thank you to all the families who came to support. It was a really wonderful evening!

Great Fire of London in Year 1

It has been a busy first week back in Year 1. The children are loving our new topic all about the Great Fire of London. It has been great to see how enthusiastic the children are about their learning around this. This week we have started learning ‘London’s Burning’ as part of our music topic this half term. We have spent this week discussing pitch, with some children even starting to learn the round. We can’t wait to do some more work on this next week. Here is a video of our progress on the song so far!

Singing Assemblies

Clergy Worship on a Tuesday morning consists of key stages joining together to sing and worship together.Take a look at Year 5 enjoying their singing assembly this morning. They sang songs about our current value, ‘forgiveness’. 

Sam the Sound Man

In Autumn 2, 4A had a visit from Sam the sound man. They learnt so many amazing things about sound from how echoes work to ways we could make their own instruments. They all really enjoyed the session and it really helped deepen their Science learning for this half term. A couple of cool facts they learnt were: hard materials produce more echoes, there is no sound in space and the bigger the object the lower the sound it will make.

They also finished our samba topic in Music by collating all the rhythms they learnt this half term to create a final piece of work. Mr Ash was really impressed with the children’s perseverance in the subject as they are now a lot more confident at playing as part of a group or as individuals.
