If you would like your child to learn a musical instrument then we have tutors coming into the school who teach woodwind, piano, brass, guitar, percussion and strings. The school does subsidise these lessons and has a number of instruments to loan. Please contact the school office if you would like more details.
Nb: the school band and orchestra are very much in demand locally, and our carol singing in Chagford Square every year at the Christmas Shopping Evening is enjoyed by everyone!
A drama, dance and percussion club which takes place every Monday in the school hall from 3.30-4.45pm and is run by Rosina Kellman. Open to children from Year 3 onwards, the club aims to have fun and be creative, whilst exploring the varied art forms of drama, dance and music.
By acting out sketches, practising dance and doing plays, the children learn dramatic expression which will periodically be turned into performances.
Would you be interested in your child learning French?
We are very keen to start up a French Club at the school, so I am interested to find out just how many people would be interested so that I can explore the possibilities. Please email the school (see the Contact Us page) and let me know. Merci beaucoup!
We have recently said goodbye to our chess master but the children's enthusiasm for the game remains and they do not wish to say 'check mate' to their chess club, so if there is anyone out there who would be able to teach the children chess every Monday lunchtime, please do get in touch (see the contact us page).
Other Cultural Activities
There is also a full programme of off-site visits for all classes throughout the year, with theatrical performances by visiting acting companies, authors and musicians.
