Year 5 and 6 London trip|
On Thursday 22nd of September, a group of excited year 5 and 6 pupils and four members of staff travelled to London as we had been invited to sing in St. Paul’s Cathedral.
After a long 7-hour coach trip we all finally arrived at the hostel where we were staying. We unpacked our bags and sat down to a tasty meal. Following on from this we were then treated to an exclusive open top bus tour of London. On our trip we saw various famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and The London Eye. Then after a very long day it was time for bed!
The next day, we had our breakfast and were then treated to a tour around St Paul's Cathedral. This was then followed by a quick rehearsal with our group leader Tom, who works at St Paul's Cathedral. He showed the children how to clear their throats and get their voices ready to sing.
Finally, after a few practices it was time for the children to perform. Over 100 visitors attended the performance and the children were amazing. Mrs Craggs, Mrs Coyne, Mr Vanboyd and myself were so proud of them all and even became a little emotional ourselves.
Unfortunately, it was then time to go home and we were then faced with another 7-hour coach journey back to school but it was completely worth it. We'd had a fabulous time!
In July 2016 we achieved a new PE and Sport Award.|
The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. In order to achieve our silver award we ensured that we:
