Year 4

Perseverance - Seyit

For this term, he has worked hard in music as he has brought in his own guitar every week we have had a music. At first, he didn’t know how to play the right notes but Ellis showed him and he had the music at home to practise. Without fail, Seyit has remembered to bring in his own guitar to school and played it in music lessons.
