Pupils at Branton Community First School recently played a violin concert for parents.
Reception pupils from the age of four have been learning the violin with Annelise Nicklen from the Northern Music Partnership.
In September, the school’s six new Reception children will begin their violin lessons too.
Headteacher Zoe Ryan said: “This is quite unusual and we believe this is unique to Branton First. The parents were very impressed with how all the children played the violins.”
