I liked it when we did the Tudor shopping as I liked working out how much I could buy. I also enjoyed looking at the details on the Tudor coins. By Lauren Hewett
I loved the Shakespeare Centre and I really liked writing my name with the quill and stamping the pieces of paper. By Sophie Lloyd
Informal Concert (16.10.14)Posted: 17th October 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our first Informal Concert of the year and it was lovely to hear such a variety of music being played. We heard performances from Years 3 – 8 which demonstrated the wealth of talent we have within the school. Congratulations to all those pupils who took part.
Oundle Brass Day (3.10.14)Posted: 16th October 2014
The Oundle Brass Day was a great opportunity for new and experienced brass players. It was a fun day with a concert at the end which showed what can be achieved after just a few hours of practice. I encourage every brass player in school to go next year as it was a great experience and we all learnt a great deal.

On Tuesday 7th October a group of pupils, some singers, some string players, went to Oakham to play with all the different schools from all over the country. The strings played a suite called ‘The Adventures of Greensleeves’ and the singers sang several songs including, ‘The Goose and the Gander’ and ‘Pastime with Good Company’. The theme of the day was ‘Travelling Through Time’ and all the different parts of ‘Greensleeves’ were from different eras. We heard Oakham Chamber Orchestra and the Chamber Choir. The strings played, ‘Finale: The Dargason’ from St Paul’s Suite and the choir sang ‘Fyer, Fyer!’. All in all it was a lovely day.
