Christmas Concert Mannequin Challenge
Well done everyone!
All of the children in school received a treat today - BIMM Academy came to perform, and invited children on stage to form bands and experience playing bass, guitar, drums and sing using the microphone. The assemblies were a huge success and the children impressed the BIMM tutors with their talent and confidence and ability to learn quickly.
BIMM Academy is a fun series of Saturday workshops for kids, held at award-winning Electric Studios. The workshops culminate with a huge concert, showcasing what the children have learned. BIMM Academy are enrolling now for the Spring Term.

There are not enough superlatives to express the pride and joy I have tonight. Every single one of the 231 children who performed today (Mega Choir, Super Choir and Orchestra) should be incredibly proud of themselves this evening: THREE concerts in one day, and the performance standard was THROUGH the ROOF! Packed full with original compositions, traditional carols and Christmas songs - you all gave the audience an experience they'll never forget.
Congratulations. You were INSPIRING SHINING STARS.
Lots of festive love, from Miss Rusbatch

Orchestra is cancelled this week (Thursday 8th December). We will, however, have a Christmas party for our final rehearsal of the term - on Thursday 15th December. It would be great if the children could bring some food to share: Sweet or savoury. Thank you very much.
The final Mega Choir rehearsal of the term will be on Wednesday 14th December. We will be playing games and having some Christmassy fun!
Thanks, all, for your commitment and dedication to rehearsals this term. I can't wait for your talent and effort to be rewarded and appreciated in the upcoming concerts.
Remember to BRING A SCARF TOMORROW.
Year 3 - you were AMAZING today. You looked and sounded brilliant.
Thank you for rehearsing so much and for trying so hard.
The audiences were smiling from start to finish.
You should be REALLY proud of yourselves.
You have 2 more performances tomorrow, to the rest of the school
(children in Years 4, 5 and 6 and the staff). See you then!
Huge congratulations and thanks to the Year 6 children in Super Choir who attended the Primary Schools' Christmas Concert at the Brighton Centre last night. Alongside 43 schools from across the city, Super Choir sang their hearts out, whilst maintaining complex harmonies, counter-melodies and performing makaton actions!
See the Christmas 2016 page for more information about upcoming concerts.
Great rehearsal this afternoon Year 6 Super Choir - you are more than ready for tonight's BIG concert. Remember - we are meeting at 6.30pm in the main foyer on the ground floor;
look for the A3 Downs Junior School sign and/or Miss Rusbatch
(she'll be wearing a sparkly green cape)!
If you are late (after 6.45pm), join us in your stage place in the auditorium. Parents, once you have dropped your child off with Miss Rusbatch, please take their coat and then make your way to your seats. The concert starts promptly at 7.00pm.
Following this afternoon's rehearsal, I can now confirm that we are positioned towards the far left-hand side of the raked seating / staging, behind the Big Band.
The concert will end between 8.20pm and 8.30pm. Please collect your child from the same area in the foyer on the ground floor. Please ensure you make Miss Rusbatch aware that you have your child and you are leaving the Brighton Centre.
Children may wear Christmas headgear plus any combination of
red, green, black, white, silver or gold.
ENJOY THE SHOW!
Thanks to the members of Mega Choir and Super Choir who turned up at M&S to sing for charity this morning. We raised £281.50 for CLIC Sargent.
Tomorrow (Sunday 4th December) children in Mega Choir and Super Choir will be singing at Mark and Spencer Food in Hollingbury.
We'll be raising money for the charity CLIC Sargent (supporting young people with cancer). If you're coming along, please bring some gold and silver coins and pop them in a bucket. Thank you.
We're meeting in the corner of the car park, close to the M&S entrance. We'll be singing from 11:00 - 11;30.
Hope to see you there.
