Young Voices 2015

Earlier this week 38 of our Year 4 & 5 children took part in Young Voices. They, along with over 5000 others, performed in a two-hour concert to a sold out audience at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. The choir performed songs from the stage and screen, chart hits, some original compositions made especially for the occasion AND provided back up for three other guest artists. Not to mention the dance moves!

Check out the video and pictures below…

Well done to everyone who took part, you did us proud!

2014 in review

Our friends at WordPress.com have prepared a 2014 annual report for our website.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 420,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 18 days for that many people to see it.
