The Magic of Christmas

 

Every child sings at Sulivan and 65% of KS2 play an instrument. This year’s Christmas concert promised to impressed and this is did with great success. A festive feast of music, singing and performing by our KS1 and KS2 children.

The children sang with confidence and filled our hall with joy and festive cheer. From the Christmas Medley sung in 4 parts, the jolly Rudolph song and the mind blowing Twelve Days of Christmas sung and played in 12 parts, it really was treat for us all.

Raising the roof (and some money) at Sainsbury’s!

 

The Key Stage 2 Choir sang a medley of songs at Sainbury’s this week to raise money for Save the Children. We raised almost £100 and brought a bit of Sulivan festive spirit to delighted shoppers.

Nativity!

 

A huge round of applause for our Nursery and Reception children who told the story of the the Nativity song, speech and movement. The audience were so impressed by their confidence and team work. Bravo!

Taking the stage at Sulivan

 

Presentation and performance are core skills in our curriculum as it develops confidence, spoken language and co-operation skills that are needed to learn and in adult life. This term’s class performances have taken us on journeys through WWII, Ancient Greece and the age of the Victorians.

Year 4 visit the British Museum

 

This term Willow Class (Year 4) have been learning about Ancient Greek history, art and literature. They have developed a good knowledge of mythology and the key historical events and people made famous in ancient times. Their visit to the British Museum inspired the children and brought the topic to life.

The class have been learning to present their work to an audience which they did with confidence at their class assembly. Parents, families and the whole school were impressed by their public speaking and performance as they sang, acted and presented information to the audience. They have been studying the myth of King Midas in English and are retelling and analysing it before writing their own versions.

Miss Campbell has noted that “the class have been really gripped by the topic. They learnt key facts and information about the time and used excellent critical thinking skills to ask questions, compare and contrast and view the period holistically; how art, literature and events link together to tell us the story of Ancient Greece in 2019. It has been wonderful to see how much they have learnt and how much they have enjoyed it.”
