As part of our topic “Colchester as a Garrison Town” Year 2 were delighted to be able to join the band of the Parachute Regiment. We spent an amazing morning with them at Merville Barracks where we found out about the instruments in the band, we were able to watch a Sunset Ceremony and then the children paired up with a band member and marched with them whilst they played! The children sang our Remembrance song which we had learned in school and taught the band how to floss as well! Our thanks to Ashley’s mum for arranging this fantastic learning experience for us.
