Information on Past and Present Clubs
Mr Bache runs the Choir, supported by Mrs. Fox and Mrs. Suthers.
The choir were part of the Young Voices Concert on Monday 30th January. The concert took place at the Genting Arena and they were joined by over 4000 other children and a live band. The children and staff had a great day.
In Summer 2016 the choir recorded their first music video. We did a cover of the classic hit 'Perfect day.'
In December 2015 won the Free Radio Christmas Stars competition. We won £200 worth of music vouchers and our song was played on Free Radio on Christmas Day .
In November 2015 the School Choir were involved in recording a CD 'Now That's What I Call A Grendon Christmas.' The children worked extremely hard on the day and had to be very patient as we often had to re-record things to make our CD sound as amazing as possible.
Music and Instruments
There are opportunities for children in Key Stage 2 to learn and play musical instruments at Grendon. These lessons are provided by visiting teachers from Services for Education. Ms. Davis offers violin lessons to children on a Wednesday afternoon. Miss Fox teaches woodwind instruments to children on Tuesday afternoon. Learning an instrument is a fantastic extra skill for children to develop in addition to their statutory Music curriculum time.
