Sign2Sing 2019

 We performed our Sign2Sing song on Tuesday 5th February to raise money for the deaf health charity 'SignHealth'.  We raised £118.25 as a school and over £500 across the TEACH Trust.  Thank you for your support and kind donations. 


Carols by Torchlight 2018


We held our annual ‘Carols by Torchlight’ event on December 13th 2018.

We had a fantastic turn out this year and it was a brilliant opportunity to get our local community together to celebrate Christmas.

Our talented staff joined in too with Mrs Turner playing the piano, Mr Watt on trumpet and Mrs Wills even brought her euphonium!

Thank you to the Friends of Ad Astra, who provided us all with hot drinks and tasty snacks to keep us going.

We hope to see you all again next year!


Peripatetic lessons

We offer all children in Year 1 and Year 2 the opporutnity to take up music lessons.

Our talented peripatetic teacher visits Ad Astra once a week to teach the children how to play the keyboard. These lessons are paid for by the
parent/carer and termly reports are given so you can track your child’s progress.

If this is something you think your child would be interested in, please contact the school office for further information.

Singing Assemblies

Music is a big part of life at Ad Astra Infant School and we just love to sing!

Every Tuesday, Year 1 and Year 2 take part in a special singing assembly with Miss Nash where we learn lots of different songs.

We enjoy listening to and clapping back different rhythyms and we always make sure to warm up our voices in super fun ways!

Our children really look forward to these assemblies and we all love showing off our newest musical number to the lucky parents
who are invited to attend our Golden Stars Assembly on a Monday.

EYFS African Adventures

During Autumn 2 our EYFS children went on a musical African adventure as part of their ‘African Adventures´ topic.

To celebrate this topic we were lucky enough to have a very talented African drummer called Noah come in to work with our children.

The children really enjoyed making up their own beat and rhythm and there were smiles all around!
