.Pupils were lucky enough to enjoy a musical performance by Music Hub staff. Children learnt about different instruments and the instrument families they belonged to. We explored music from different places and times and pupils thoroughly enjoyed sharing their thoughts and opinions. Conversation carried on back in classrooms and inspired pupils to explore, share and perform some of their own favourites
