An Afternoon of Dance and Music

On Wednesday 21st March the children in the Prep School delighted the audience with an afternoon of dance. Much enjoyment was had by all with the children from reception to year 6 showing off their rock and roll moves! This year’s theme was Elvis and the children in year five & six did some lovely homework based on how he moved and the different dance styles, which he used. These moves could clearly be seen in their dance. Reception and year one and two danced to ‘Burning love’, which was used in the Lilo and Stitch film. The parents provided such amazing Hawaiian costumes. Year three and four’s costumes were equally amazing, dancing to ‘Hound dog’. Lastly the year five and six costumes matched the theme for ‘Jailhouse Rock’. Well done to all the girls who worked tirelessly and energetically to make it look so good!

The parents were then treated to a showcase of singing and music from all the year groups. We began with the two recorder groups bringing us such favourites as ‘B B Blues’ and ‘Totally Blessed’. This was followed by a series of wonderful performances from girls of all ages on the piano or the violin, showing how wonderfully talented and hard working our pupils are. More hard work was evident when Reception to Year 3 treated us to songs about people who help us including ‘The Dustbin Men’ and ‘Who is There for Me?’ Finally Year 4 to 6 shared some of the delightful songs based on Enid Blyton’s poems that they have been preparing for the ISA Music Festival in early May. It was a wonderful celebration of the efforts of the girls and their teachers.
