Pupils at a Bury St Edmunds school hit the high notes and built a city from LEGO bricks in their latest activities.

The children at Guildhall Feoffment Primary welcomed renowned recorder player Piers Adams, who gave a ‘stunning’ mini concert with six different sized recorders.

He even treated the pupils to a musical story using three recorders at once.

The school’s three recorder groups then enjoyed a workshop with Piers in which they learnt to play ‘Roaring Rag’ and use their recorders for unusual sound effects.

Alison Rogers, Year 1 teacher, said: “We all feel very privileged to have met and listened to Piers.”

Meanwhile, as part of the school’s Construction Week every class took part in a LEGO workshop, which was run by ‘Team Building Workshops’ and part funded by the PTA Friends of Feoffment.

The children built houses with gardens as well as extra items such as see-saws, mazes and light houses to develop a whole community, which were then put together to create a giant city scene.

Deputy head Liz Chapman said: “The grown ups seemed as excited as the children to be let loose on so much LEGO - never running out of the exact colour or size of brick needed as there was so much to play with.

“The workshop encouraged the development of teamwork, logical thinking, creativity and practical design as well as being great fun.”
