[12/06/20]   Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow for classes at the Phoenix Centre :-)

[11/26/20]   7th December we will be back at The Phoenix Centre, cramming every minute of the session full as we are so desperate to get back to face to face teaching again.

A HUGE thank you to our parents for sticking with us, through technical difficulties, for excepting that online was how it had to be and being generally marvellous! We know it hasn't been what we all wanted but your children have been brilliant and handled it so well!

Also!!! Don't forget to send me through your singing videos...we hope you haven't forgotten to keep practising because we will be revisiting in class!!

Until then we will see you next Monday for our last Zoom session :-)

[11/23/20]   We can’t wait to get back to face to face teaching again, as much as zoom has been great nothing beats seeing all those lovely faces in the flesh!

So one more zoom next week and then fingers crossed we will see you on the 7th!
