We Got Loud

After the disappointment of unkind weather last week, M10 and M11 were able to perform our fantastic rendition of “Let’s Get Loud” this afternoon for a large audience. The children did a wonderful job and certainly were the stars of the grand finale!

Thanks to all the parents for being so accommodating and sending in costumes for a second time. Here are some photos and the video of our performance. We hope you enjoying watching us Get Loud!

Our Year in Review

To finish off our work on writing recounts for the year, the children have written reviews of what they liked about this year and what their wishes are for next year. They are a very honest account of their likes and dislikes and we hope you enjoy reading them and chatting more with your child about theirs. Continue reading

2015 End of year concert

We are very proud to share with you this year’s performance of My Favourite Time of Year by The Florin St Band from the end of year concert. All the children did an amazing job and really rose to the challenge of performing on the night.  All the practising we had done throughout the term really shone through.  We would like to thank all the parents, caregivers and even grandparents who helped source and make all the amazing costumes the children wore. They definitely looked the part. So please enjoy this year’s performance. We hope you are as proud of your children as we certainly are!

My Favourite Time of Year

Today we shared with the children the song we will be performing at the End of Year Concert. With Mrs Morris’ class, we will be performing is a song called My Favourite Time of The Year by an English band called Florin Street.

We thought that this song was most appropriate given that both classes have been learning about the era in history in which the film clip is set. It also has beautiful lyrics about the positive feelings we all have around this time of the year

We have embedded the YouTube clip here for the children to view and start learning the words. They will also be given lyric sheets to help with this too.

We hope you all enjoy it as we are really looking forward to performing it!

Music is Fun visit

This Thursday we were lucky enough to have the Music is Fun band visit our school. We had a great time singing and dancing along with them and some class members were lucky enough to be chosen to perform in these 3 songs; Lanterns, Message in a Bottle and The Addams Family.

Here are some photos from the performance as well as everyone’s thoughts about what they liked:

Junior Singers

Every Thursday we do junior singers. It is for girls and boys. We have two different groups, there is one younger group and one older group. The older group, the choir, goes before the younger group. The younger group goes to year four and under. Year five and up is the older choir group.

Today the junior singers sang at the assembly. We sang “Batman Shimmy” and “There’s A Gumtree Growing on a Hill”.
