 Music Assembly 2014


On Wednesday 10th December, St, Ambrose held our end of term Music Assembly.  This is an opportunity for our pupils to show the school and parents their learning in our music lessons.


The music assembly was opened by our school choir who performed "Candlelight Carol".  Nursery children have been learning to use instruments and played their instruments loud and quiet following picture cues from their teacher.  Reception gave us a sneak preview  of what is to come in the Early Years Nativity singing "Mary and Joseph".  Year 1 sang, acapella, the popular Christmas carol "Little Donkey".  We heard some interesting facts about Tchaikovsky from Year 2 who also performed a call and response song.  


Year 3 played the song "Merrily we roll along" on the recorders and impressed us with their reading of music note.This term, Year 4 have begun learning guitar and wowed us with their rendition of Jingle Bells.  Year 5 were joined by a group of our talented violinists and they gave us an impressive performance of Silent Night together. Year 6 have been building on their Samba skills this term which was evident in their Samba drumming.  Mr. Sanderson then led a group of violinists who brought some festive cheer to the assembly with "We wish you a Merry Christmas".This Christmas theme continued with the guitarists playing "Good King Wenceslas".  The music assembly came to a close with the after-school guitar club playing "Let it Go" much to the delight of all the children in the school!
