Summer Concert

"Oh I do love to live beside the seaside!"

Classes 2 and 3 have been lucky enough to be working with Nick Duncombe from the Hampshire Music Service. The children learned a selection of short seaside classic songs and then performed them to the whole school and their parents. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn new songs and to develop their singing abilities in a fun way.
