Mothering Sunday

On Sunday, the school choir sang at St Mary’s Church for Mother’s Day. They sang ‘Hero’ in honour of all our Mums who truly are heroes! You can listen to them singing here:

Well done, choir. We are very proud of you!

Prom Praise for Schools 2017

On Tuesday, the school choir took part in the Prom Praise for Schools event at the Royal Albert Hall. They joined thousands of other children from Church schools in London, singing songs we have been learning together in school, such as ‘Freedom’ and ‘Count your Blessings’. They also listened to some wonderful pieces of classical music, and joined in the beatbox storytelling of the Prodigal Son parable. The theme was ‘Lost and Found’ which linked really well with our current school value of Forgiveness.

Everyone had a great time and our children sang their hearts out!

Prom Praise for Schools Assembly

St Mary’s are taking part in the Prom Praise for Schools (PP4S) project this year. Members of the school choir are going to the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday 21st March to take part in a giant concert with thousands of other children from across the Diocese of London.

As part of this project, musicians from the All Souls Orchestra, who will be playing in the concert (and their conductor, Noel Tredinnick) came to St Mary’s to lead an assembly. They taught the children some of the songs, played their instruments for us and taught us about the story of the Prodigal Son, which linked with our whole school value of Forgiveness.

We really enjoyed singingPP4S visit with them, especially ‘Count Your Blessings’ which we sang in 3 parts!

 

Y5 Assembly – The Water Cycle

Year 5 shared what they had learnt about the Water Cycle in assembly today, through singing and through reading their Topic Writing.

They also led us in the hymn, In the Bleak Midwinter (due to the snow this morning!), and prayers about our Christian Value of Respect, and for people in Syria who are suffering.

 

KS2 Nativity Play – Hosanna Rock

KS2 children performed their fantastic Nativity this afternoon: Hosanna Rock. The singing was beautiful (with some wonderful solos), the dancing was energetic and the words were spoken very clearly. Well done, children – you were great!

KS1 Nativity Play – Aliens tell the Christmas Story!

This afternoon, Year 1 and 2 put on their version of the Christmas Story, with a group of aliens stranded on earth telling the story. There were stars and angels and Mary and Joseph, who like the aliens, could find no home. The children acted brilliantly and sang their hearts out. Well done, we are very proud of you!

School Carol Service

We had a wonderful carol service on Wednesday. The choir and Year 6 started us off by singing in Latin, then the whole school joined in to raise the roof with some fantastic carols. Year 6 read beautifully, and Year 5 led us in special prayers for Mrs Arnold and Mr Riordan, and for Aleppo in Syria. It was great to see lots of our parents joining us for this special service.
