Thank you to our wonderful PTA who organised a KS1 Disco. The children loved dancing and singing along to songs! Thank you to all the parents who supported the disco and helped the school to raise money.
This term we have introduced four new music ensembles that rehearse every Tuesday which include a string, brass, woodwind and guitar ensemble. These clubs are open to children in key stage 2 who already take part in weekly instrument lessons. The ensembles are run by our peripatetic team and are free for children to join. We are delighted that 50 children have signed up this term and look forward to their debut performance!
Years 5 and 6 were involved in a drama workshop on 12th October with actors from the Hobgoblin Theatre. The workshop was based around their Victorians topic. Can you spot Oliver Twist, Queen Victoria and some scared school children?! The professional actors will be visiting the children again soon to perform a play called ‘The Workhouse Boy’.
On Friday 9th October children in years 1 to 6 performed ‘The Selfish Giant’ to celebrate Harvest. The school dedicated this performance to Jean Tarran who retired at the end of last year, having taught at Sulivan for twenty five years. The performance included lots of singing, live musicians and some excellent acting. Well done to all the children involved; you made us all very proud! Parents were invited to watch the performance on Thursday 15th October – thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate Harvest at Sulivan. This year we have been collecting donations for our local food bank; thank you to everyone who has donated.
On 7th October children from Years 3 and 4 visited the Royal Albert Hall to watch the Primary Proms concert. They saw a wide range of music from folk choirs to sitar ensembles, and enjoyed singing during the audience participation activities. Luca (Year 3/4R) said “The bit I liked the best was seeing the French Horns in the orchestra. I’d never seen them before”.
