Pre-Prep Summer Concert

As the end of term raced towards us all children in the Pre-prep worked with great momentum to create art work, sing and write songs, recite poetry, choreograph dances and research facts to present to their family and friends.

During the summer term each class focussed their learning on The Great Outdoors and took every opportunity to explore our wonderful school gardens - looking at insects, animal habitats and investigating the growth of a selection of plants. In recent singing lessons with Mrs Dinnigan the children enjoyed learning many songs about the wonderful creatures around the world. Additionally the children in Year 2 have closed their Kenyan topic with a truly magnificent Masai moves dance!

The Year One children opened the performance as their Beautiful Bug Ball began, they showed off their hand made bug costumes whilst singing The Ugly Bug Ball along with a super shimmy up the stairs! This was swiftly followed by a wonderful poem, song and a dance all about the lifecycle of a caterpillar expertly retold by the children in Reception. As the concert began all children waited with anticipation for what promised to be a memorable dance from Year 2, unfortunately we had to wait until the end to enjoy their incredibly moving Kenyan dance, facts and song. I hope you’ll all agree that it was well worth the wait!

 

The concert concluded with the whole of the Pre-prep singing beautifully ‘Give me Oil in my Lamp” followed by a walk down memory lane as we watched a montage of photos from the past year! The children performed with great confidence and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.  Well done to all children on a terrific performance!
