    2021-2022 Music clubs

    We are very pleased to announce that we are able to return to some group music making again in school this term. In line with guidance, instruments will not be shared, numbers will be limited and we will have strict hygiene and social distancing measures in place.

    This term we’ll be offering the following clubs:

    Free lunchtime clubs

    Mr Taylor will be running a lunchtime ukulele ensemble. This is open to anyone in KS2 and they don't need to have their own ukulele. Children can sign up for that in class.

    If your child would like to join a lunchtime club, they should listen out for details at school about how to sign up. There is no need to contact to the office about lunchtime clubs.

    Afterschool clubs

    To start us off this September, Mrs Carruthers will be running an after school choir for KS2. We'll be taking the choir to perform at events such as the Royal Norfolk Show in the Summer, and this term they'll be performing their Christmas songs out in theThetford community and at our school Christmas Concert.
    The choir will run from 3:15-4:15 on Wednesdays after school and is free of charge. Please let the office know if your child would like to take part.
