Voice in a Million - VIAM

On Wednesday 22nd March, the KS2 children, who are in the school choir, had the amazing opportunity to sing at Wembley Arena. The children enjoyed singing (and dancing!) alongside other schools, with over 2000 children performing.

One of our parents who came to see the performance said, ‘It was absolutely amazing to see them having so much fun and was such an incredible experience for them. .. We felt so proud of them all-especially being such a small school. ‘

 

  

We are already looking forward to next year!

Celebrating Chinese New Year

We enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year together by all wearing as much red clothing to school as possible and by listening to Alicia tell us about her experience of the Chinese New Year during our school assembly. She told us that it is tradition to wear new clothing for the new year and to give gifts of money to each other.

Key Stage 1 took the celebrations even further by decorating their classroom and completing a round robin of activities including throughout the day. The children each got to make noodles, Chinese lanterns and Chinese envelopes which they then put gold coins in and took home. A big thank you to Alicia, Mia and their parents for sharing their experiences with us and providing fortune cookies, dumplings , sweets and decorations for the classes.

Great fun was had by all!

Christingle At The Chapel

The choir, and a number of additional children from school, attended the Christingle Service at Breachwood Green Chapel. Ben and Willow made us proud with their poetry reading and the choir sang beautifully. The children enjoyed learning about the Christingle, especially when they got to hold the Christingle with a lit candle!
 
Thank you to all those who attended.

Carols by Candlelight

Carols by Candlelight

Thank you so much to everyone who attended our first ever Carols by Candlelight—it was a great turn out. The choir sang beautifully and Noann’s piano accompaniment was very impressive—well done. Miss Mayes enjoyed the opportunity to play the piano and has started practising for next year! We do hope to make this a yearly event as it brings the community together, both young and old.

Thank you to everyone who helped at the event!

Visit from Bim Afolami

On Friday 19th October the school councillors met Bim Afolami, the local MP (Member of Parliament). We asked him lots of questions about his job including what he thinks of the police force, what the upside and downsides are of being an MP, and what it is like in the Houses of Parliament—he said, 'It is like a palace but because it is so old it can be a bit dusty!'.

We really enjoyed talking to him and were pleased he came to visit us.

Djembe Drumming Concert

Class 3 and Class 4 performed an outstanding mini concert on Wednesday 24th October to showcase the fantastic skills they have learnt over the last six weeks.  During this time, the children have taken part in Djembe drumming lessons, taught by Caz from Hitchin Music Services, and have made incredible progress. The performance showed the children playing complex rhythms in rounds and even had them singing a call and response, welcome song called 'Fanga Alafia'. 

Classes 1 and 2 will get the chance to have these drumming lessons in the summer term and we can't wait for their performance!

Performing Perfectly

We are very proud of the children who performed at Breachwood Green Chapel on Sunday 16th September. They didn't have long to practise their song, yet they didn't let that deter them.  Since the Harvest service, a number of people have told the school how well the children performed and liked our choice of song - Dingle Dangle Scarecrow.  Two of the girls also read aloud a Harvest poem.

It was a lovely morning, enjoyed by all, and we were pleased to be able to share our talents with the rest of the community.

The children at Breachwood Green JMI were joined by some new friends this week!

It was great to see such a variety of entries for the Kings Walden and Breachwood Green Gardening Club Scarecrow competition.  The children enjoyed making the scarecrows in class and Class 3 were lucky enough to come joint first.

Well done and thank you to those of your who entered.
