Music Lessons (Years 3 to 6)
The school encourages the children to play many varied musical instruments including harp, guitar, drums, brass, woodwind, keyboard and violin. Peripatetic music teachers visit the school to and provide lessons for a fee. Children/Parents are asked in July if they wish to start/continue music lessons the following September. Parents/Carers are expected to agree to pay for a full year’s tuition and will be invoiced via Parent Pay each term (3 terms per year). Further details available from Reception.
We are very proud of our School Choir. They perform at various local venues during the year. The Choir also has the opportunity to attend the CanSing Event with the Welsh National Opera normally during June.
The school takes part in the Urdd Eisteddfod. Children can compete in various competitions such as singing (individual and group), reciting (individual and group), choir, arts and crafts, and Action Song. Further details of the Eisteddfod dates can be found on the Urdd website. The Urdd organisation also offer sporting competitions.

School Educational Visits
We believe children learn best by being in contact with real situations, either in the classroom or outside. Consequently, we are aware of the advantages of visits and see them as an expected extension of the learning situation for children within our case. Sometimes these visits mean we have to ask you for voluntary contributions to help cover the costs. On these occasions your child will always bring home a note specifying the amount and the dates arranged.
