Today 4.2 have had their very first brass lesson. We got to practice our use of pitch, beat and buzz and have a go at using our mouthpieces.
After a good practice we got our own instruments and tried our hand at playing a C.
Macie said she liked the brass lesson because "it was very exciting and we can now practice our instruments so that we can play them beautifully!"
Adam added that he enjoyed learning how to create a sound with the instrument. He said he found it "very easy!"
Dwayne admitted that he found it a bit tough to make the buzz on the instrument but he had fun all the same!
We are all looking forward to our next brass lesson next week!

There's a brand new 4.2 in town and they've had a very busy first two weeks back at school!
Today we had our first Celebration Assembly for years 3 and 4 and we got the chance to celebrate lots of wonderful achievements from the year so far!
A massive congratulations go to Kashish and Me'Shack for winning our first certificates that were presented to them by Mrs Williams, Me'Shack for Settling In Well and Kashish for wonderful reading.
Mrs Roberts also had a special surprise for us during this assembly. She bought some wonderful medals to commemorate the Queen Elizabeth I's achievement of becoming the Longest Reigning British Monarch.
Last week, everyone in KS2 created beautiful fact files jam packed with information about the Queen and two lucky winners from each class got to receive one of Mrs Roberts' wonderful medals.
For us, the congratulations go to Kashish (again!) and Aman.
The good news doesn't end there for 4.2! Esha and Sara did lots of work about the Queen at home and when Mrs Roberts saw it she was so impressed that they received a medal each too!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
