Thanks to everyone involved in the FODJ Summer Fair 2018. Congratulations to all of the performers in Mega Choir, Orchestra and Super Choir. Well done also to the children in the bands for this year's final. For videos of the concert, visit the summer concerts page.
This afternoon, the top 4 bands from this year's Battle of the Bands went over the road to Downs Infant School to perform for the children and staff.
In March 2018, the bands Gryffindor Vs Slytherin (Year 3), Musical Fireworks (Year 4) and P.E.B. (Year 5) received the same score total from our music industry judges, finishing in joint second place. This year's winners were No Signal (Year 6). Congratulations to all of you - Misa, Kaya, Leo, Edi, Phine, Olive, Violet, Eva, Joseph and Isla.
To see videos of their performances today, visit the BATTLE OF THE BANDS 2018 page.
Today saw the first of four performances of Mary Poppins. The Year 6 children performed brilliantly, with wonderful acting and singing and slick backstage support. Well done to the entire Mary Poppins team. Have a restful weekend, ready for next week's performances.
Some of the boys in 5DR wanted to perform their Fortnite dance to the class today!
Ernie (Year 5) has been writing his own World Cup song about Team England's journey. Ernie adds a new verse or a middle-8 / bridge section after every match and every stage of the tournament. On the day of England's semi-final against Croatia (today), we recorded Ernie's song so far... I wonder what tomorrow's new verse will sound like... celebrations or commiserations...?
Well done Ernie - it's BRILLIANT!
COME ON ENGLAND!!!
