Music Showcase 2017

Posted on

This week the young musicians of Cockwood School displayed their wonderful talents in our annual Music Showcase. Children from across the school came together to perform to a crowd in the Village Hall for both parents and friends, wowing the audience with some super musical pieces.

Our current music teachers specialise in keyboard, drums and guitar. We were able to see an array of performances across these instruments from pupils of all levels. It was truly fantastic to see even beginner performers take to the stage with such confidence. A big well done to all those children involved, and a big thank you to our music teachers for their continued hard work.

Class 1 Cornwall Residential

Posted on

Pupils in Class 1 enjoyed a super Cornwall experience.

The children started the visit with a trip to Bodmin Jail, which linked nicely to their topic of Crime and Punishment. This was followed by a Flambards and a cinema visit, a trip to an escape room – where the children needed to think strategically to solve the clues and then on to an art gallery showing works linked to light.

On Thursday the children also had the opportunity to take part in a Barbara Hepworth sculpture workshop and we spent some time enjoying group activities on the beach.
