Years 3 - 6 Performing Arts Evening

Posted: 14th June 2013 | Category: Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

On the Thursday before half term, children from Years 3 to 6 gathered to perform to parents and friends.  Since we introduced these Performing Arts evenings last year, they have gained in popularity with children eager to share their successes with us.  This particular evening was an opportunity for us to listen to, and watch, some of the younger children as well as some of our more seasoned performers!

The programme opened with Years 3 and 4 performing Grandma’s Rap which was an amusing piece learned during their choir sessions.  We were delighted to listen to some of our Keyboard and Piano players who entertained us with a wide and varied programme.  Our violinists have made real progress over the past year and it was also a pleasure to hear our two Woodwind players.  Who would have thought that they had only been playing for a year? 

Our singing students go from strength to strength and they all sang with assurance.  Having heard superb performances from our older drummers on previous occasions, it was lovely to hear a younger pupil, James, playing with such confidence and flair.

As always, our drama students rose to the occasion and provided a number of excellent performances.  Most of the students took LAMDA exams last term with some truly outstanding results.  ‘A Case of Mistaken Identity’ deserves special mention as the audience truly believed that the interjections from various members of staff reflected on the standard of the performance.   They soon realised the comedy behind the drama!

The newly formed recorder ensemble concluded a delightful evening with arrangements of Popeye the Sailor Man and My Heart will Go On from ‘Titanic’.

Without the support of our peripatetic staff, these events could not take place so I should like to extend our thanks for all their hard work and support over the past year.  A big ‘thank you’ also goes to the members of Year 8 who willingly gave of their time to work backstage to ensure that the evening ran smoothly.
