Please read the important letter about the Strike Action in your children's book bags tonight-many thanks


Music is a strength at St Mark’s and we are lucky to have an experienced specialist music teacher as our coordinator, Mr Potter

 In Key Stage 1 children learn to use percussion instruments and play the ocarina. They compose and perform together and listen to many different styles of music

In Key Stage 2 children learn to play the ukulele. In years 3 and 4 they learn about chords and rhythm. This continues in year 5 and 6 with I Pad music;learning how to read music from conventional notation and tablature.

There is an opportunity to learn to play the guitar(years 3-6), with Mr Pattinson, who visits each week.  Please contact the school office if you would like more information.

KS1 and KS2 have a singing assembly each week and there is also a school choir for children in years 3-6 .

Our choir sing in an annual festival , Angel's of the North, at the Sage in Gateshead.

EXCITING NEWS..... We will soon be working with the National Opera House on an exciting project .........details to follow
