On Friday 21st June, thanks to the PTFA and your generous donations over the last year, we had a whole school workshop with Singing Nation. From 9 o’clock and throughout the day, the school was filled with beautiful singing as the children learnt not one, but two songs! Emma and Nathan taught the children ‘Speechless’ (from the new Aladdin film) and ‘Champion’ which involved the older children wowing us with a rap! These songs linked in brilliantly with our School vision of having Love, Strength and Faith and our learning power of ‘Persevering Parrot’ and never giving up.
At the end of the afternoon, the children showed off their new skills to the parents who joined us for our end of the week celebration assembly. It was so lovely to see the children singing so passionately and having clearly enjoyed a really great day. The staff were amazed the children managed to learn so many words in just a few short hours and are looking forward to seeing these new memory skills transfer into their work in the classroom…!
Again, a huge thank you to the PTFA for fundraising for these music workshops – they have been absolutely fantastic. We have African Drumming coming in next week so keep an eye out for photos of this!
Impact and Knowledge Gained
The children got to experience the joy and reward of singing and performing as a part of a group. The songs chosen by the leaders linked well with our vision and values, and our Learning Powers, giving us more songs to sing as part of our collective worships.
