On March 22nd the children in Year One took part in the South Tyneside Infant Music Festival at the Customs House in South Shields. This is a yearly event and our school took part in it for the first time this year. Six other schools performed on the same night. In the first half the children performed a song by themselves – ‘If I were a butterfly.’ We had nine beautiful soloists! The rest of the class sang the choruses and performed the actions brilliantly. In the second half of the evening the story of Noah’s Ark was told through singing, dance and drama. Leo, from St Joseph’s, played the part of Japheth, one of Noah’s sons. He was amazing – confident, clear and expressive. Sophie, Hayden, Declan and Emily dressed up in the fabulous costumes made very kindly by Callum’s nana, to play the pairs of elephants and frogs that board the ark. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves! We also had two wonderful narrators who helped to tell the story – Ethan and Millie. Everyone sang their hearts out and performed the actions to the songs with great enthusiasm. It was a super evening made even more exciting by travelling to the venue in a double decker bus! On the following Monday the children performed one of the songs to the rest of the school, with equal enthusiasm! Well done Year One. We are very proud of you all!
