Music at the School
Year 3 children have been learning to play the cello this year and parents were invited into school to hear them perform. They made a wonderful rich sound and their parents were very appreciative.
Hitchin Festival, St Marys Church
On Monday 1st July the Ickleford Primary School Choir took part in a Schools concert at St Marys Church in Hitchin. Other schools present were Wilshere - Dacre, Kimpton, Our Lady's, Offley, Breachwood Green, St Paul's Walden, Preston and Cockernhoe. We were very proud of the children.
Learning to play an instrument at Ickleford
There are lots of opportunities for the children to take part in musical activities. Many of the children have instrumental lessons taught by visiting peripatetic teachers. Currently lessons are available on the piano, keyboard, violin, cello, woodwind and brass instruments. All the children in Year 3 learn to play the cello free of charge. We have a school orchestra and a school choir.
