On Tuesday 19th March, the choir had a fantastic experience of singing alongside 4000 students from the south-east of the UK. They spent a few months preparing the songs and actions and it was incredible hearing all the voices singing as one.
The event told the story of Moses and the exodus out of Egypt through music by the All Souls Orchestra as well as dance and acting. All the students thoroughly enjoyed it and the adults even got a tad teary during Amazing Grace!
On Friday we had a film crew in school who were making a promotional video as part of Westminster Council’s #dontbeidle campaign. Pupils from Year 5 and 6 had starring roles and showed a great deal of talent! We will let you know when the finished film is available for viewing.
On Friday 25th January, some of the Faith Council attended a special thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral, organised by the LDBS. The service was attended by schools from the Diocese of London, who came together to give thanks for the work that schools do. We were really excited to hear from Bishop Sarah, the Bishop of London, who answered some of the children’s questions. It was a wonderful afternoon.
On Monday, we held our annual carol service at St Mary’s church. The children sang beautifully and were accompanied by some members of the St Mary’s church band – thank you for lending us your talent! It was a really lovely afternoon.
On Sunday 9th December, the choir performed at St Mary’s Church Christingle service. They did a fantastic job and represented the school beautifully. Well done to all of you, and also to Mr Watkins for his hard work.
This term, we have been thinking about being kind to ourselves and to other people. Year 2 wrote some wonderful poems:
