 Useful Information

  • Weekly music lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. The children will be continuing their knowledge of how to play the ukelele but will focus more on intonation, reading sheet music and learning different tunes.

  • If your child has anything they wish to discuss, please encourage them to approach their teacher first. In Year 5 we strive to achieve greater independence.  
  • To communicate with the class teacher you can either ring the school office on 01793 700443 or email the office admin@haydonleighschool.co.uk to be forwarded to the class teacher and they will get back to you as soon as possible
