In March we joined other schools from around West Suffolk to be parts of the schools music celebration at Snape Maltings. We had an amazing time.
We played Sleigh Ride for our Christmas celebration at church. It was very tricky. Mrs Burrows said we did really well.
This has been our favourite piece so far - do you recognise it?
Matthew Whitaker (an ex Exning pupil) who is a great musician - comes to band every week to help us. Thank you, Matthew. This week he showed us his bass clarinet and he played along with us when we were doing the blues.
Exning Band entered the Newmarket Academy performing arts competition and came first with their wonderful performance. - well done!
Exning band consists of children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6. We meet after school on Thursdays until 4:30.
Children get to try a range of instruments and learn to read music and work as a team.
This term we have had children playing recorders, clarinets, saxophones, keyboards, glockenspiels, djembe and a range of percussion instruments.
If you would like to be part of Exning band or have any questions - please see Mrs Burrows.
