Each week children from each class will be presented with either a Teachers Award or a Spellers Award for that week. We would normally celebrate this in school during an assembly but due to the guidelines we have to follow this is currently not possible. So another way we are celebrating these achievements are to post them on to our website. We hope you enjoy and are as proud as we are of these children.
Congratulations to: Arpan, Lucy, Navamanisha and Samson
Thank you so much to you, the children and other staff at Christ Church Primary Academy for participating in the BBC Symphony Orchestra Connecting the Dots workshops with our players yesterday and today. Special thanks to Russell and Amanda for sorting out the technology. We’ve had a wonderful time and really enjoyed meeting you and the various classes. We especially loved the creative thoughts that came from the children and Alex and I will definitely remember the Kangaroo in a Lamborghini and the Frog on a BMX. Can you remind us which animal it was on the submarine; my sound cut out briefly so I didn’t catch that one!
As promised, a few more links that you might find interesting. Lucica, who led the workshop with Martha’s class has made a video of her performing with some of her young students which you might be interested in: https://youtu.be/ycmlX7Fac1Y
As Peter and Shirley explained, due to the constraints of Zoom it’s not possible for them to play together over that medium, but here is a short piece that they have put together with our regular guest pianist, Liz Burley, whilst they have been in isolation:
Year 6 has been working through the BBC ’10 pieces at home’ website this term.
Today, we listened to Anna Clyne’s Night Ferry and responded to the music through art. Here are some of our interpretations:
We’ve also been lucky enough to have workshops for each class ‘bubble’ organised by BBC music through Zoom with professional musicians. Today we had workshops from a cellist, violinist and a viola player. Tomorrow’s workshops are with a percussionist and an oboe/cor anglais player!
