Letter’s to Parents and Homework

Y1 Spring 2 Parents Letter February 2019


Reception and Year 1 enjoyed an afternoon at Portsmouth guildhall when they watched a music concert performed by ensemble 360 orchestra.  It was very exciting to see the different instruments including: Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass, Flute, Oboe Clarinet, Bassoon, French Horn and Piano play songs to accompany the story of ‘Giddy Goat’.

“I loved seeing the big double bass it played very low sounds” – James

“My favourite was the bassoon” – Olivia

As well as listening to the ensemble play the Finale from the Carnival of the Animals there was a lot of audience participation as the children joined in singing and making actions to the songs which accompanied the story. ‘Rock rounders’ was a favourite song with the instruments playing the characters pretending to be brave or scared.
