Rushall children take part in the Summer 2021 infant and junior singing festivals…

This week, year 2 and year 4 amazed us all with their song entries for the annual infant and junior singing festivals, hosted by Walsall Music Education Hub.

Year 2 sung ‘A Million Dreams‘ from The Greatest Showman and an original song, written for the festival called ‘Lockdown Life‘.

Year 4 sung ‘This Is Me‘ from The Greatest Showman and another original song, written for the festival called ‘The Brightest Day‘.

Both classes were able to sign parts of their songs from The Greatest Showman using Makaton.

The Infant Singing Festival, featuring year 2, will be aired on Walsall Music Hub’s YouTube channel on Thursday 1st July. Further information about how to access this will be given out soon.

The Junior Singing Festival, featuring year 4, will also be aired on Walsall Music Hub’s YouTube channel on Thursday 24th June. Further information about how to access this will be given out soon.

Below are some photographs and video clips of both classes performing.

Perseverance on the piano!

Aaliyah in year 4 decided to feature herself playing the piano as part of her perseverance homework.
Aaliyah is showing us all here that with perseverance, plenty of practise and the determination to keep trying, you can achieve anything.
It is wonderful to see you playing the piano at home Aaliyah.
We can’t wait for in person assemblies again so that you can play the pianon for us at school!
