Year 3 and 4 choir had the most marvellous time singing at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham! We had been learning 3 songs in our choir sessions each week, which we were able to sing together on the concert day with lots of other schools in the West Midlands. These involved singing in Jazz style, cumulative songs and rounds which were based around the theme of pets. We were taught many actions and dance movements to move along to. Although we found them tricky to start with, we enjoyed them immensely! Some of us even sang these on the coach returning back to school! The total number of children that took part were nearly 1,000 and you can imagine, what an incredible sound we made! This will certainly be a morning we won’t forget!
The Year 5’s had the most wonderful time at RAF Cosford to learn more about World War Two!
Our day involved looking at World War Two aircraft (and sitting in the cockpit of some of these aeroplanes!) taking part in an air-raid, trying on RAF costumes/looking at 1930’s artefacts, and listening to real-life experiences from War Veterans.
We also found out more about the behaviour of forces whilst taking part in Science Experiments.
All the class teachers were incredibly proud of the children’s behaviour during this visit, and the confident way they conducted themselves whilst researching more about life as a RAF pilot/child living in WWII.
All their work will feature in a special WWII day we will be holding in school soon – further details/invitations will be coming your way shortly!
