Young Voices was amazing!!!
It’s a short and sweet blog this week but I want to make sure I’ve given you the weekly update on what’s been happening and what we’ve got planned for next week.
Last night was a true highlight of the year when our Young Voices choir and staff performed at the Genting Arena in Birmingham in front of a sell-out crowd. There were over 6,000 children in the choir and the atmosphere in the arena was absolutely electrifying. It’s an experience that will stay with them forever and it was wonderful to hear Beau (one of the amazing performers and winner of Britain’s got Talent) tell everyone that she had been part of the YV choir at the age of 7 and it spurred her on in her ambitions to be a performer; a message backed up throughout the concert and one that we constantly reinforce in school when we advise you to work hard, aim high and believe in yourself and your dreams.
Thank you to Mrs Haines, Mrs Williams and Miss Norton for their hard work in preparing the children for the concert, to Mrs Tree for accompanying them yesterday, to the parents and carers for their support, to the children for their hard work and especially to the generosity once again of ATM (the company owned by Mr Barnett- Windsor) for sponsoring the coach; it is very greatly appreciated.
It was lovely to see parents in school on Tuesday to join lessons and I apologise for the fact that we have had to postpone the invitation to Y3 parents. We will rectify this and sort out a time for you to join us very soon.
Some Y5 parents and carers will be in school on Monday for the Big Bird Watch themed dinner and there is a Coffee Morning meeting on Tuesday 9am to 10am in the Community Room.
Well done to our dodgeball team who played extremely well in the matches at Pingle on Wednesday and have qualified for the finals in a couple of weeks. Their hard work in practising skills with Mr Morant has paid off and they are a formidable squad!
Y3 have road safety workshops this afternoon and Y5 will be taking part in theirs next week in our bid to ensure everyone stays safe in the environment and understands the rules.
Potters have finally been beaten in the House Point race with Brewers taking the lead and winning this week’s star. Unfortunately I don’t have the times tables or reading scores to hand but I will let you know the winners on Monday when we announce attendance. Fingers crossed the results are good!
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you all on Monday.
PS Don’t forget to take part in the Big Bird Watch at home!
Blog Box question: what is the theme for Monday’s special dinner?
