Both the Year 4 and the Year 5 Choirs travelled to Cleethorpes to take part in the music festival there. Held in in the Memorial Hall, both choirs sang the set piece Hot Air Balloon and their own choice pieces admirably. The Year 5 Choir just beat the Year 4 Choir by one mark. However, it was the turn of Year 4 to be victorious in the Hymn Class, as they sang Abba Father beautifully to win their first ever trophy. Well done to all the children!
  Two lovely evenings were held to showcase individual children’s music making. The first of these was by the Year 6, held in the Rutter Room, and it was lovely to
see how much the children had progressed with their instrumental studies throughout their time in the Junior School. There were performances on brass instruments, woodwind instruments, violins, cellos and guitars as well as piano and vocal items.
The Year 4 and 5 Chamber Concert was held in the new venue of the Junior School Hall and featured children who are just beginning their musical journeys as well
as some who have been playing for some while. All the children conquered their nerves admirably to perform to an appreciative and large audience. Well done to all!
   The Year 5 Choir travelled to the Albermarle Music Centre in Hull to compete against other Hull Primary schools at Hull Music Festival in March. The choir were once again successful in both of their classes, winning two awards.
The Year 6 Choir had the privilege of working in partnership with the Hull Music Hub and took part in the World Premiere of Map: Songs for Children Everywhere, written by Errollyn Wallen. They spent a day in May working with Charles MacDougall and joined singers from City of Hull Junior Choir, Hull Choral Union Junior
Chorus, Kelvin Hall School and Wold Academy at the Albemarle music Centre in Hull. The performance was then recorded and the songs can be found via the website
