All pupils in year 4 will access free musical instrument tuition as part of our Wider Opportunities provision. Our school community has enjoyed attending ukelele concerts during the recent year and has been impressed by the progress our children have made.
In 2015-2016, pupils will learn to play the ukulele. Pupils in year 5 will have the opportunity to continue learning to play this instrument at a subsidised rate.
In December 2015 , our pupils played at a Christmas concert for parents and carers and in January 2016, our ukulele players performed at our opening celebration of our new classroom. Our pupils also played a range of new songs in January at a concert for parents/carers. We were very proud of our pupils.
There are opportunities at Buxton Community School for pupils to continue playing this instrument.
