This is an exciting morning that provides a range of fun musical activities, enabling your children to explore four different blocks of music each week. Set into four rotating groups, the children who sign up for this will enjoy the SINGING SPACE, the RECORDER ROOM, the FIDDLE FACTORY and the PERCUSSION PAD every week. They will spend 30 minutes in each block before changing rooms to move on to the next block. Loretto will provide all resources on Saturdays, including violins and recorders, but if you wish your child to make ‘proper’ progress on violin and recorder, it is recommended that you purchase your own instruments to practise on at home.

The timings are as follows:

9:20am Children are dropped off and registered
9:30 - 10:00 First block 30 minutes
10.00 - 10.10am  Changeover
10.10 - 10.40am Second block 30 minutes
10.40 - 11.00am  Snacks
11.00 - 11.30am Third block 30 minutes
11.30 - 11.40am Changeover
11.40 - 12.10pm Fourth block 30 minutes
12.10pm  Parents return to pick up children

For only £20 per week, each child can enjoy ALL FOUR activities on a Saturday morning. It is necessary to pay for each term in advance to secure a place.

Snacks and drinks will be provided for the children free of charge.
