All about the Arts!

What an amazing start to the week we have had this week. I was privileged to be invited to support the Young Voice Choir club in Sheffield with Mrs Kightley, Mrs Goddard-Tate and our Piano Teacher, Mr Emmett. Our forty pupils joined with five thousand others to perform to a large audience of parents and family members. They had to chance to rehearse first, learning more about how a professional performance is created. They also got to perform with some well known celebrities. It truly was a wonderful experience and one that I am sure they will remember for years to come. Many thanks to the parents for their support and I hope that those who were able to travel to Sheffield enjoyed the performance as much as we did.

Every week, when I make our video, I can see trends and patterns in our learning. The children’s pride in their work and their enthusiasm for learning is evident as well as their love of the range of subjects taught. Often we see sporting achievements as well as academic ones. I am very passionate about the arts and have especially loved making the video over the last two weeks as there has been so much art work being created at home as well as at school. They really should be proud of their achievements and I look forward to seeing more. 

Finally, can I ask you to spend a little time reading the Adverse Weather letter that is being distributed through Parent Hub? We are hoping that we don’t have the extreme weather of 2018 but it is best to be prepared.
