Spilsby Primary School pupils were recently treated to a special visit from indie rockers The Rogues.

Two of the band members, Alex Rossiter and Alex Martin, are ex-pupils and returned to perform for the children and kick start a new topic based on 20th century music.

Year Three and Four classes will be looking at how sound is produced, a range of musical genres, creating music-inspired artwork and writing song lyrics.

Teacher Louisa Roberts said: “The children had a brilliant experience and were captivated by the performance. It created lots of excitable discussion between the children, who are now making plans to learn to play instruments.”

The band members showed how different instruments work and gave the children copies of their current EP ‘1 of 1.’
