KS2 Choir has resumed on Thursdays after school 3.15-4.15pm. It is open to Years 3 - 6 but please register your interest by emailing Mrs Baker as spaces are limited. Children can bring a small snack with them to eat before the start of the rehearsal.
The KS2 Choir will be performing at the St Peter's Winter Concert on Thursday 7th December at 7pm. They will also be taking part in the St Albans Primary School Association Gala performance at the Alban Arena. This will either be on Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th or Wednesday 27th March at 7.00pm.
These are some of the songs we will be learning this term.

We wish you a merry Christmas
The lights will lead me home
