The Pop Project
Key Stage 1 and 2 both thoroughly enjoyed the visit from the Pop Project. We were shown a selection of radios from the 1950's to the present day. We also looked at fashion through the decades and had the most fun of all singing along to songs from the 1950's to the hits of the 2000's. Click on the icon to see a photo story of the day.
We have instrumental tutors who visit our school each week to teach small groups of children a range of orchestral instruments.
Mr Wilde teaches violin of a Thursday morning. You have to be in Y3 or above to learn the violin. It is a tricky instrument which needs lots of practice, but it is also great fun.
Mrs Dalby teaches woodwind instruments of a Wednesday afternoon. Children from Y5 onwards can learn to play flute, clarinet, saxophone or a mini bassoon. The children regularly perform in school worship.
Miss Laird visits our school on Tuesday mornings to run the School Orchestra and to teach brass instruments to our children.
Mr Hayes will teach all of our pupils how to play the mini harp this year. Y1 and Y2 thoroughly enjoyed their lessons in the Autumn term. Year 3 and Year 4 have just started and are looking forward to performing a piece in major and minor.
Everyone takes part in our school productions which are usually led by Y6 or Y2. We visit our local churches for our Easter and Christingle Services. Our musical productions are usually held in the hall and we always take part in the Deeside Music Festival. However, music is a vital part of every day at Dawpool.
Watch out for photo stories of some of this year's exciting musical events.

We recently had a visit from the Barbershop choir at Birkenhead School. Key Stage 2 pupils were entertained by the group of boys aged 16-18 years old. I wonder if you can remember the connection their teacher has with our school?
