SONGS and sums brought music to the ears of over 60 children who visited Christ’s Hospital school’s maths and music workshop.

The year five children from 15 schools worked in separate groups throughout the day ready for a presentation later that afternoon on Thursday February 23.

As well as watching the band parade and having lunch, the children were able enjoy the sunshine before getting back to work to demonstrate the mathematical structure of music in their presentation to parents and teachers.

Ben Vessey, Deputy Head, said: “We were delighted to welcome so many children, staff and parents to Christ’s Hospital. The aim of the workshops programme is to provide a valuable and different educational experience for the children”.

James Watts, a visiting teacher, said that the children ‘learned a great deal’ and that they would be writing articles about their visit for their school paper.

The next workshops for Year five children will be physics and music on June 15. Contact Christ’s Hospital on 01403 211293.
