Today in assembly, Mr. Farish from the Middle School brought the Grade 8 band to play for us. He taught us about all the families in the band: woodwinds, percussion, and brass. We enjoyed seeing some old faces who used to go to the Junior School as well as many new ones. We enjoyed listening to the story of Little Red Riding Hood shared with us through music. Thank you Mr. Farish and the Grade 8 band.
The Grade 4 students have been preparing since the beginning of September for their first concert. Mrs. Smith has helped them to learn how to hold their instruments, how to make beautiful sounds, how to read music and how to listen to one anothe and play together. indeed this is a great deal of learning in 3 months. Congratulations Grade 4!
Last week, the students in Grade 4 visited the residents at James Bay Care Home. This service trip is a regular trip that happens for all students in our Junior School once a year. We decide as a class what we would like to share with the seniors, considering their interests and how we would like to communicate. This year, we decided to share some of our individual musical talents as well as some of our 'old favourite' picture books. We learned a great deal about the lives of the seniors and tried to ask questions that were important for them. We are so grateful to spend time with some of the senior members of our community.
