Friday 3rd February was 'Music Day' at Strawberry Fields! It was brilliant! We were visited by two bands, Maia and Trio Globo, and a musician and singer named Andrea Alonso. All our guests played for our children during a morning assembly, when we were also treated to a brilliant performance from our school violin group - some of whom have only been learning for 3 weeks! Thank you so much to Mrs Roberts for all her work with them.
Every class in school (from F1 right up to Year 6) then had a music workshop with one of our visitors, as well as having a chance to listen to and discuss some music.
We ended the day with another assembly, where Maia played a few songs, our school choir sang and William for Year 3 impressed everyone with his guitar playing. Some children in Y5/6 also performed some short pieces they had created during one of their workshops.
Children and staff alike agreed it was a great day, and hopefully we sent all the children home enthused about music and keen to think about learning an instrument themselves!
