To ensure that P6 enjoy their full 2 hours of physical activity per week, we are enjoying a range of “5-a-Day” activity sessions in class. These support the twice weekly P.E. sessions the pupils have with our P.E. specialist.
P6 had a wonderful visit from the Red Note Ensemble, who are touring Scotland this month. They are all accomplished professional musicians who use their music to tell stories which inspire us to imagine journeys. What an amazing opportunity to have live music played just for us!
“Since its formation in 2008, Red Note Ensemble has taken up a leadership position as Scotland’s contemporary music ensemble, performing and developing both an extensive, highly-varied and critically-acclaimed programme of new music.”
The quartet performed for P6 and P5 in their classrooms, bringing the pupils into contact with pieces by Janáček and Shostakovitch, amongst others.
Many members of P6 and P5 were visibly enthused by the experience, referring to it afterwards as “extreme” and “exciting”.
Thank you very much to the Red Note members for their kind visit.
