Orchestra Concert!

Wow the Orchestra was amazing last week!

Our talented children have been practising hard with Mr Marchant every week in the collaboration orchestra.

They played a selection of carols to parents and friends and were rewarded with mincepies!

If you know someone who would like to join the orchestra see me – Mrs Sherrington, or ask at the office. The orchestra meet at Mountbatten School on Tuesdays from 4 – 4.45. They could do with some flute players?!


Wellow Clarinets Shine in the Abbey!

Well Done Wellow Clarinets!

We all really enjoyed your performance of Silent Night in the Carol Concert at the Abbey last week – you sounded beautiful.

Music Concert Showcases Talent!

What an incredible array of talented musicians there are at Wellow School!

On Friday 14th July we held a Fund Raising Concert to raise money for our school.

The fabulous Mrs Hensel wrote music for an orchestral ensemble – each child had individualised music to suit their abilities. The children gave up their lunchtimes to practise weekly and sounded amazing!

Mrs Hensel also ran a Pop Choir who moved us all to tears with their beautiful songs.

Many children from across the school had also been practising hard to perform solos, duets, trios and small groups.

Well Done all of you – you were fabulous!


Thanks also to those of you that provided cakes for the cake sale, or helped run the stall on the day.  And big thanks to Mrs Hensel and Mrs Trounson for all their hard work with the children.


Woodwind Try-Out!

Today Years 2 – 5 had the chance to try out a range of woodwind instruments.

Mrs Trounson the woodwind teacher came to talk to anyone who was interested in playing a woodwind instrument and having lessons in September.

The children were allowed to try a flute, clarinet and a saxophone.

If your child would like to have music lessons, a letter will come out in the Summer Term.

Hampshire Music Services send a range of music teachers to Wellow School. You can contact them directly.

Or come and see me!

Recorder playing in assembly!

We had a real treat in the Year 2 assembly today!

The children showed off their fabulous recorder skills.

Mrs Boakes teaches Year 2 the recorder in weekly lessons.

Well done Year 2, we were very impressed!IMG_2007


Collaboration Orchestra Carols

On Tuesday the Collaboration Orchestra held a fantastic carol concert at Mountbatten School.

The children from the three federation schools have been working very hard alongside some pupils from Mountbatten and even some members of staff – The brass have been very lucky to have a teacher play with them every week!

We really enjoyed listening to the orchestra play – what a super sound you all made. Very well done!



If you are interested in joining the orchestra, see Mrs Sherrington or call the music department at Mountbatten. Mr Marchant runs the orchestra weekly after school on Tuesdays for a small fee.


Year 2 Recorder Lessons

Beautiful music was wafting around the school today as Year 2 started their recorder lessons!

Mrs Boakes and the class played along with the backing tracks. What a shame I can’t add a soundtrack for you all to hear!

The children are very excited to play to you at home…. Enjoy!

We hope you had a very enjoyable and musical holiday.

Music Lessons are back in full swing this week and the new musicians are thrilled to be learning their new instruments.

Rock Steady has moved to Friday afternoons – some spaces available – see their website.

Orchestra has started up again. This year it is at Mountbatten School after school on Tuesdays. The orchestra sounds amazing already and the children have the added bonus of some teachers playing alongside them! Contact Mr Marchant at Mountbatten or see me if you would like your child to join or if you have any questions.

Year 6 Leavers Assembly

Wow Wow Wow!

Our Year 6 class gave us an afternoon to remember today when they performed their leavers assembly. We all needed our tissues as they talked about the years they have spent at Wellow, the wonderful trips and experiences they have enjoyed and the staff they have known and loved.

The performance was accompanied by a huge range of talented young musicians playing; flutes, trombone, trumpet, cornet, guitars, saxaphone, violins and singers.

We were so pround of the Year 6 class for having the confidence to stand in front of the whole school, staff, as well as rows and rows of parents with cameras and phones recording. It’s not easy to stand and perform on your own and we were VERY IMPRESSED WITH YOUR TALENT! (I hope you are reading this?)

It was a great opportunity for the lower years to hear a range of instruments played live, I hope you inspired a new generation of musicians.

Very well done Year 6. We wish you all the best as you move on through your education…….. keep practising!
