Music at the Roche School

We have recently produced a short film entitled Music at The Roche School, which you can see here, designed to give you an insight into the role and importance of music at our school.

Our school has a very high standard of singing. Each class has a weekly singing lesson in which a vast repertoire is taught with progressive vocal techniques and a variety of styles. This culminates with multi-part singing, frequently with the whole school, of truly exceptional quality and energy. Every class also has a general music lesson each week which includes the use of instruments and movement in the Lower School and notation and composition in the Upper School.

Each term concludes with a concert in which our  choirs, classes, orchestra and soloists perform. The Summer Term includes an Eisteddfod music competition which the children love and is growing each year. We hope you enjoy the film.

STEM Week – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
