Music subject overview

Uplands Choir

A big well done to our choir children who performed as part of a fun-filled afternoon at the Highfields Centre. They joined children of all different ages from schools in the local area for songs and dances, with a finale of all schools singing ‘We’re All In This Together’ from High School Musical. Thank you to parents for supporting the event, we hope you enjoyed it!

Music Events

A full week of music experiences at Uplands Junior L.E.A.D. Academy this week.

On Tuesday each year group sang some Christmas songs at the Highfields Centre, it was so nice to have the whole school come together. On Wednesday the choir sang at The Caribbean Centre and on Thursday we had our end of term performance by our Rock Steady bands, supported by the choir. A very big thank you to our parents who came to support their children and to join in the singing. Our thanks also goes to Ash from Rock Steady, Chris from Leicestershire Music who teaches ukulele and Rebecca who leads the choir. If your child is interested in joining the choir or Rock Steady please contact Mrs Grimshaw through the school office or refer to the leaflet about Rock Steady later in the newsletter.
