Anna Sargeant – Parent Governor

As Governor of Music and Performing Arts, this term I would like to say a very special well done to all of the children who performed at Bottesford Civic Service, which was held at St Peters Church on Sunday 2 March.

A small group of year 2 children volunteered to represent our school at the service which was held for Mr Ron Urry, the new Mayor of Bottesford.

All of the children who took part sang beautifully, despite a few nerves, and they represented our school very well.  Refreshments were held after the service and the feedback from the many Mayors from surrounding areas, priests and other local community leaders, as well as Mr Urry himself and his wife, was that it was a lovely performance.  The children sang really well and it was enjoyed by all who attended.

School staff who organised the performance and rehearsals to enable the children to attend were fantastic.  I would particularly like to say a huge thank you to the children who kindly volunteered to participate in this event, as well as parents for their support and for taking time at the weekend to transport their children to the venue.

On Thursday 20 March a group of children will be attending the Wake and Shake Festival at Scunthorpe Baths Hall.  This is an annual event where local schools compete in musical performances/dance routines.  The children are all volunteers and have attended rehearsals after school for quite a few weeks and are all keen to learn their routine.  Mrs Cullum is co-ordinating this event and has been working extremely hard to teach the children their dance routine and organising costumes so that on the day they are all ready for action! I would like to wish them all the very best of luck in their performance on the day and I am really looking forward to watching it as they perform on stage at the event.

Mrs Smith is continuing with teaching the children recorders during lunchtime on Wednesdays.   Mrs Watson is also continuing her regular peripatetic music lessons on Thursdays, which all of the children appear to enjoy as she uses musical instruments, props and toys in a meaningful way to teach the children about rhythms, beats and different sounds as well as vocal training.

Mrs Elliott has a sing along assembly on a Friday afternoon which the children enjoy with lots of different songs to sing and they vary widely.  The children enjoy this because some songs have actions, some are quiet, some loud and fast and it is a good experience for the children to all join in together and have fun.

In the next few weeks it is of course Class assemblies where all children have the opportunity to perform on stage to share all of their hard work, skills and knowledge with family and friends.

It is enjoyable to observe children during Class assemblies as they increase in confidence on the stage and learn to feel proud of what they have done and achieved.

I am looking forward to watching the Class assemblies, it is nice to see what the children have all been doing.
